Audiobooks GoSpoken on UK cell phones

Interesting news from the UK. A new service called GoSpoken is set to begin in April. It is an audiobook download service that will send audiobooks to cell phones. The business website doesn't have a lot of details, but the UK's Bookseller is reporting that Random House UK will be licencing audiobook titles to GoSpoken.

Remember my Jan 26th prediction that cell phones would become the dominant audiobook player? As a middle school librarian, I can say that it's beginning to seem as though more kids have cell phones than iPods or other MP3 players - and certainly have the cell phone in hand way more often! Looks like I'll need to convince my sister who lives in London to sign up & report in on GoSpoken.
