[access-uk] Re: Some advice required on players for audible content

Hi steve

Interesting to hear about Audible support for the N91, that was one of the 
major shortcomings you pointed out in your review of it for your Podcast and 
for Infotech magazine, so good to hear it's been addressed, even if the 
phone is more or less on its way out.
