Windows Phone and Audible.com have not had the best track record together. Over a year ago, we thought an Audible.com app may be close to hitting the Marketplace, only to find out it was for WinMo 6.X. Then we found out this summer that one was en route, but no ETA was given. Well, hopefully, that is all water under the bridge, as one of our readers reports that the long lost ETA may be March 2012.
An email received by said reader (who chooses to remain anonymous) says:
An Audible app has been in the work for quite sometime. It was not until recently that we were given a tentative release date. If everything goes as scheduled, the app should be making its debut on Windows phones near the end of March 2012.

While we always take such matters with a grain of salt, we remain hopeful that this is indeed true. Audible remains one of the few marquee apps to remain absent for Windows Phone.
