It looks as though T-Mobile may have spilled the beans on this one, possibly. It's no secret that Research In Motion has a dedicated podcast app in the works. Of course, that application is directly built into BlackBerry 6 but it is designed to work on other devices as it stands now. A lot of folks have mentioned the concern over it not arriving on other devices but logistically this makes no sense considering it's available for all 5.0 devices as is right now from the BlackBerry Beta Zone.

T-Mobile however, has tossed up a podcasts webpage letting everyone know that a dedicated podcast app is coming soon. On that page they spotlight a BlackBerry Curve 8520 and highlight the BlackBerry offering. This could mean one of two things really. One being that T-Mobile is rolling out their own BlackBerry app or two being, BlackBerry Podcasts will soon leave beta zone and hit the carrier. I really can't see T-Mobile rolling out their own app for this so, I'm guessing that we'll see BlackBerry Podcasts launch soon but I could be totally wrong here. Time will tell I guess. In the meantime, if you need to get you podcast fix in you can download Podtrapper or the dedicated CrackBerry Podcast app today.

You say: "it's available for all 5.0 devices as is right now from the BlackBerry Beta Zone. "

I'm a member of the Beta Zone, but I do not see a Podcast App in the list of Eligible Programs. Is it hidden somewhere?

I even went and checked the Beta Zone. It's not available to everyone.

bulls2213

yeah, definitely not.

I never said it was available to EVERYONE, I said it was available for all 5.0 devices.

It's only available to some beta zone members - invite only. I would have loved to be on the beta for this. I'll just be glad when it is really available to everyone.

Maybe I missed something, but I have been waiting a long time in the Beta Zone for this app. If it's available, can someone point me in the right direction?

I CANT SEE T-MOBILE COMING OUT WITH THEIR OWN APP FOR PODCASTING WHEN A LOT OF THERE BLACKBERRY DEVICES STILL DONT HAVE THE NEW BLACKBERRY OS 5.0. 1ST THEY DISCONTINUED THE CURVE 8900 AND NOW THERE TAKING THERE SLOW TIME RELEASING THE OS 5.0, ESPECIALLY WHEN A LOT OF THE NEW APPS, AND SOFTWARE UPGRADES ONLY WORK WITH 5.0. T-MOBILE NEEDS TO GET THERE PRIORITIZE IN ORDER B4 THEY CAN THINK ABOUT DEVELOPING AN APP OF THEIR OWN FOR PODCASTING
