BlackBerry Podcast to tempt individuals to trade in their old mobiles?

Individuals could be tempted to recycle their old mobile and use the cash to buy a BlackBerry, as the makers of the handset have now launched BlackBerry Podcasts.

The free application gives BlackBerry owners the chance to search and enjoy podcasts from a number of providers.

Vice-president of Multimedia Integration at Research In Motion Alistair Mitchell said the feature will give mobile users an "enriched and streamlined multimedia" experience.

"The new BlackBerry Podcasts app and service makes it easier than ever to discover and download a wide range of content directly from a BlackBerry smartphone," he added.

Mr Mitchell noted those who make use of the service will also be able to subscribe to podcasts and they will be alerted when new content is available.

People with a BlackBerry will have free access to video and audio content that can be downloaded using Wi-Fi and then viewed through their handset's media player.

Julie Snape, marketing manager at Envirofone, says: "If you like to be able to catch up on radio shows that you’ve missed, this is a great app for you. Trading in your old phone for cash is an easy way to upgrade to a new handset."

Earlier this week, mobile network provider Three announced the BlackBerry Torch 9800 handset will soon be made available to consumers.
