Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 21, 2005
Audiofy Corporation, a premier digital audiobook publisher, today announced the availability of hundreds of additional titles in its innovative audiobook chip format, following agreements with leading audiobook publishers Audio Partners Publishing and Blackstone Audiobooks.
As part of the Company's holiday promotions, Audiofy is offering special pricing on digital audiobooks from respected best-selling authors, including Patrick O'Brian, Agatha Christie, Rex Stout, Orson Scott Card, Shelby Foote, Lois McMaster Bujold, Bernard Cornwell and Spider Robinson.
For the first time, Agatha Christie's The Mysterious Affair at Styles, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd and Murder on the Orient Express have been gathered together - 30+ hours of mystery on three Audiofy chips. In addition, Audiofy offers the digital world premiere of the first three books of Rex Stout's famous Nero Wolfe series: Fer-de-Lance, The League of Frightened Men and The Rubber Band.
“Audiofy has had great success in delivering spoken audio titles to targeted niche markets, such as Simon & Schuster's Pimsleur foreign language training, or Soundview's spoken audio summaries of best-selling business books. With the recent agreements we've established with audiobook publishers, we can now offer hundreds of new titles in fiction, business, classics and other genres as well,” said Peter D. Nalle, Audiofy’s CEO. “Unlike traditional audiobooks on stacks of CDs or cassettes, each Audiofy title is contained on a single stamp-sized audiobook chip that's convenient to listen to while commuting, exercising, or just lounging about at home. Audiofy audiobook chips are now available through our resellers, affilliate networks and retail chains including Airport Wireless.”
Every Audiofy audiobook chip can be played on a variety of devices with SD memory card expansion slots, including Microsoft Pocket PC handheld PDAs and Windows Mobile smartphones running Pocket PC 2002 or later and Palm handheld PDAs and Treo smartphones running Palm OS 5.2.1 or later. The chips will play on desktop and laptop computers running Microsoft Windows 98/Me/2000/XP, as well as Apple PowerBook and iBook laptops and Apple Power Mac, iMac and Mac mini computers running Mac OS X 10.3 and above, using any available SD memory card expansion slot or a low-cost USB adapter.
Additionally, the Audiofy Player offers an inexpensive alternative for customers to listen to audiobook chips without any need for a computer. The $29.95 player is pocket-sized, weighs just ounces and is easy to use whether you are driving, commuting, exercising or just on the living room sofa. All Audiofy products comply with the “Audiobook Compatible” standard established by the Audio Publishers Association and the Consumer Electronics Association.
