CellCasts or MobilCasts
Rob Greenlee points to a couple of articles that discuss about Cellcasts and Mobilcasts. Question simply put, Do you want to listen to streaming music or downloaded music on your cellphone?
Here is an article that talks about "Cellcasts".
I also found another more recent article talking about The Coming Age of the â€œCellcastâ€ or â€œMobilcastâ€ : Resource Shelf blog.
Few Resources on Cellcasts from Resource Shelf blog:
This mobile service (http://wap.upsnap.com) offers a number of features and is one that weâ€™ve mentioned on ResourceShelf for several years as a mobile portal. They provide several free features (local directory search, sports scores, price comparison info and more) along with audio content. They also a number of podcast and other types of audio programming. UpSnap delivers the audio material over the plain old telephone system (U.S. phone numbers). After you select the program, youâ€™re given a phone number to dial and the program begins playing. UpSnap also offers SMS access.
Stream to your mobile, thousands of podcasts. Select from various formats (.m3u,.pls.,ram,.asx). Stream direct from the WAP site or use a Java client (will not work with Treoâ€™s).

+ Radio4PDA (aka Tuned.mobi)
This is a site that we use on a very regular basis. The editors of this page have created an impressive directory
of mainstream radio stations in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Ireland and created direct links to the URL where they stream their audio from. A real time saver. Those of you who have devices that can play Windows MP3 files, some Real content, and steaming MP3 (Shoutcast) will want to take a look here. Impressive!!!
Simply enter the url of any podcast and within minutes a phone number is provided to dial-in and listen to the program. Similar to UpSnap.
A directory of podcasts is also available.
If your favorite podcast isnâ€™t already in our directory, you can add it immediately and itâ€™ll be available to call within minutes.
