Possible Apps available with coming update?

I know it will probably be just speculation, but has anyone heard if Audible audiobooks and any podcast feed apps would be available with the coming update?  The main reason I rooted was to be able to keep up with the several podcasts and have Audible books on my NC.

 

I have been kicking around the idea of going back to unrooted with my NC, I hate the idea of rooting just for those two features, although I do use both each day. If Audible and podcast feeds were available I would be happy and content. Of course I do like to be able to check scores and weather on the NC without having to switch between the iPod Touch.

 

I am finding some of the apps to be a bit tempermental on the NC, the ESPN app and the Accu-Weather app, especially, which are the two I use almost everyday. I am not a big gamer, so games are not even necessary, although I do have Frogger and paper Toss.

 

So I may for now, unroot and just keep the iPod Touch for just a bit longer until I see what the new updates can an cannot do. Any input?

 

Thanks,

Mark

Audible is owned by Amazon, so I wouldn't get your hopes up.

 

You never know, but I really doubt it.

Re: Possible Apps available with coming update?

Has anyone else noted the prices on audible.com have increased significantly since Amazon bought them?
