Mobile Podcasting in China

Post ImageStan Sorensen at the Mobile Podcasting blog notes that Melodeo, a company that provides music and podcasts to cell phones, has formed a joint venture in China:

Melodeo has gotten together with ACCESS China to form a joint venture in China. The JV will deploy the first secure mobile network for digital content in China. This is a huge opportunity for us. The 2 largest carriers in China represent 350m users. Each one is accustomed to using their mobile phone as a computer – it’s the primary device for communicating, accessing the web, downloading data.

Stan also notes that “this is a first for mobile in China.” I’m not exactly sure what it means for mobile podcasting, but presumably a larger presence and user base for a company like Melodeo will only help.
