Now you can listen to your audio books on the Android phone with AUDIBLE . The software was finally released yesterday and can be downloaded from Market. The software is free . Signed up membership at Audible.com and you will get credits to redeem free books. Infact out of the 30 books I have , 5 of them are free due to the redeem credits given over the earlier purchases. After installed, just signed in using your user name and your library list  of audio books purchased will be displayed within few seconds. Clicking on any of the selections will download it to the phone.

My tests :  a 1.5 hour audio book took about 8 minutes over 3G and a 5 hour audio book took 15-20  minutes over Wifi. While it is being downloaded, you can simultaneously play and hear it. It works very well on my Nexus and also on  the Android version of HTC HD2. Just as in the iPod Touch and iPhone,  it is best to hear these audio books using a headset .

The software comes with many options and settings to tune your preferences ( see screenshots below )
