Nick Jr. on Sprint PCS

Nickelodeon announced the launch of Nick Mobile on Sprint PCS phones, April 17. Sprint PCS customers will be able to download a "full range of video clips from Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. programming" according to the press release.

There will be short video clips, vignettes and music videos. The Nick Jr. music videos will be about two minutes long. The Nick Jr. clips will be from Dora, Blue's Clues, LazyTown, The Wonder Pets, and yes, The Backyardigans.

Some aspects of this are already available online at the Nick Mobile website. You can check out top downloads, buy wallpaper, ringtones and other items, or do a search to find your favorite character or show.Among the ringtones, the Backyardigans theme is one of the top downloads. The Tasha wallpaper is one of the overall top downloads.

(Interestingly, there are only three Backyardigan wallpapers. One of them is a generic logo, but the other two feature Tasha and Austin. Maybe they're finally figuring out that Tasha and Austin are loved just as much as Pablo, Tyrone and Uniqua?)

You don't have to be a Sprint PCS customer to download the wallpaper and ringtones from Nick Mobile. Be warned, though, that your phone might not be compatible with their system. You can check when you go to buy by scrolling down to the Phone Compatability section of the purchase page.

I am interested in how the Sprint downloads are. Do any of our readers have this? Can you share with the rest of us how it is?
