Spotify Premium coming to the HTC Hero Android

htc_hero_SpotifyI’ve always been a bit of a sucker for HTC handsets and those of you not yet in thrall to the iPhone may quite fancy the HTC Hero.

Not only is the Hero 3 UK’s first Android phone, it’s also the first time membership to Spotify Premium has been included in a tariff.

The great thing is, you can use it on your PC too, so you don’t have to listen to ads any more. You’ll have to sign up for a two-year contract, but you get Spotify included with the fee. Plus, you can synch up your playlists and listen to them on your phone even when you don’t have signal. Neat!

Spotify Mobile for the HTC Hero will cost £35 a month (plus an upfront fee of £99) and includes

• Unlimited Spotify Premium for mobile and PC for 24months (worth £240)
• 750 minutes to other mobiles
• Unlimited texts
• Unlimited 3 -to – 3 calls
• Unlimited email, internet browsing and Facebook
• Free Skype-to–Skype calls

    That’s awesome shame you have to pay hundred quid upfront plus the 2 year contract. Android is such a neat OS for phones, especially the Hero and new Tattoo with the HTC touchflo interface. The Spotify app however is making me seriously consider a premium account.

    That’s really not a bad price, shame it’s on 3.

    I have that phone handset and it’s pretty awesome, I now know 4 or 5 iPhone owners who have moved to a Hero handset.

    Sadly, Spotify doesn’t work with my Sonos system so I use Napster instead – I understand they’re working on a Hero client until then I use a little Creative Zen V Player that Napster gave me for free.
