Cingular phones rss feed

I’ve been waiting months for Cingular to release the Nokia N75; it is a bit annoying checking their product page over and over again so I’ve been thinking about creating an RSS feed for their offerings for some time. Now its done – and here it is: Cingular RSS Feed. There’s a yaml data file here too. Updated nightly.

Now we can easily watch as Cingular keeps adding crappy RAZRs in assorted colors instead of actually adding new phones.

I tried a number of ruby and python screen scraping utilities along the way, ultimately I’ve been quite pleased with Hpricot, so if you’re doing some scraping and can use Ruby, I’d give that a whirl.
