Sigh. You know, given my previous experience waiting, literally years, for Audible to support Zune, this should come as no surprise. But it’s still disappointing.
You may recall a post from a few weeks ago in which I noted an exchange between Audible and a listener where Audible claimed it would support Windows Phone “within the next month.” There was some nervous joking at the time that Audible probably meant Windows Mobile and not Windows Phone.
It might not be a joke. I just received another email exchange between Audible and a listener. And this one isn’t so positive.
Thank you very much for contacting Audible.com about the upcoming Windows 7 Phone. As of right now, there is no information regarding the release of this application for the Windows 7 Phone. However, the version will eventually be supported once we have resolved the current issues with the Audible Air Application for 6.0 and 6.5. This being said, there is no estimated time frame or release date for this device.
So cross your fingers, or sacrifice a goat, or whatever it is you do to make good things happen. :) This could take a while.
