    I hope we get an audible player soon for android.

    You can email audible to get signed up for beta or news:

    audiblewireless@audible.com

    Can I use my phone that runs off the Android operating system (e.g. Motorola DROID & HTC Hero) with Audible?

    Can't wait to pick up my EVO on 6/4.

    Switching from the Palm Pre, atleast I could use classic app & still use my Pre to listen to my audio books.

    anyone else email Audible or follow them on twitter: Audible (audible_com) on Twitter

    I've also already contacted them requesting an android app/support and asked to be signed up for the beta when it comes out.

    There's also another way to get access to your audible books I found the other day when I was doublechecking their site. It's called AudibleAir, and it is for mobile phones. Have not tried it yet, hoping the Android gets support before my Evo arrives. But here's the link for anyone who wants it:

    Until Audible has their app out you can use Overdrive and borrow from your local library.

    This is DW's preferred option.

    I wonder if Overdrive can be accessed via mobile device?

    I'm wishing there was an ebook reader that could download and display books from Overdrive. My local library gives us access, but I don't have a reader that supports their DRM.

    I convert my audible files to mp3 with Sound taxi. I don't have chapters, but I can create bookmarks to return to later using astro player

    There is a beta of the Audible.com audiobook reader, it seems to work rather well for a beta.
