RSS feeds on E61

I've recently bought a Nokia E61 and was looking forward to getting RSS feeds on it. I particularly wanted to get some news feeds from the Australian ABC site - see http://www.abc.net.au/news/syndicate/topstoriesrss.xml as an example.

What I want is a piece of software that downloads headlines + short description + full text of article when I do some sort of manual sync. This would allow me to download a complete set of news stories to be cached on the phone so I could read them anywhere, like on the bus home, without having to incur wireless data charges.

However, all the software I have seen so far downloads the xml file which contains the headline and short description but not the actual text of the article. Does anyone know of any software that does what I'm looking for? I tried AvantGo as it now has RSS support but there isn't a version available yet for Series 60 Vsn 3.

Regards,
Phill

Did you try Mobipocket? I am not sure it does what you want, but it seems to have useful RSS functionality (I use it as an ebook reader only though).

I agree, Mobipocket Reader will probably do the job. It has difficulty with a few sites but works very well with most.

Thanks for the suggestions. MobiPocket works a treat!

Thanks,

It claims to have RSS capability but as that part requires a windoze pc it somewhat limits its usefulness.

I actually like the PC interface and think it's bonus. It makes it easy to define RSS feeds and then you just do a simple sync which transfers all the data to the handset and it means that you're using the PC's connectivity rather than the expensive wireless network.
