Amazon has an awesome audio book service which goes as audible.com. This service lets us listen to eBooks and is an amazing experience. News is that Audoble.com is coming to Android even before iPhone as an app.

The release of the app is scheduled sometime in the summer of 2010. The app though, will not only let users listen to songs on their Android powered phones, it will also act as a lightweight social networking website. This will give the book business a boost with proper user generated content to recommend and browse through books.

This apps is available from Audible.com which in itself is a paid service charging a subscription fees per month. Although the app on Android will not support buying of books, the feature will surely be integrated in future.

The app will allow users to share their views and collectively, create a network around this web service.  This will go a long way in improving the bookstore and the audible service at large.

    I was so happy to hear the news that I went searching for information on the subject. I had actually written Audible about this just last week but someone actually gave me incorrect information saying that a solution did not exist.

    Please note the link of where you can download the Android version of Audible.com’s application: http://www.audible.com/wireless/android

    Obs, this is v.1.03, no longer beta!
    I’m buying my android phone tomorrow!
