Spotify comes to the HTC Hero as part of smart new 3 deal
They’ve announced that Spotify will be coming to the HTC Hero smartphone via 3 Mobile as of 3rd November. Better still, Spotify’s presence will be featured as a marketing tool for the phone – in addition to £99 for the Hero handset, a 24-month contract will cost £35 a month, with Spotify included in the tariff for the two-year period.
iPhone users of Spotify currently have to sign up and pay for the Premium service, which costs £10 per month.
Other features of the Hero’s impressive tariff include 750 minutes to other mobiles, unlimited texts, unlimited data, as well as other established 3 tariff features such as free calls via Skype.
If you can put up with being on the 3 network and their legendarily shitty customer service, it seems like a hell of a deal. Truly, the era of the Smartphone Wars is upon us. Oh, the stories we'll be able to tell to our children, our children's children, our children's children's children and all their daft little mates...
