The Truth: Why iPhone Users Will Ditch AT&T and Run to Verizon

Say what you will about Spotify‘s delayed US launch or whether its freemium model is ultimately flawed, but when it comes to rolling out mobile clients, the music streaming service can’t be bettered. While other companies set the bar at an iPhone app (and possibly Android), Spotify, with its European roots, has already gone where many dare not, developing a fully-fledged client for Nokia’s Symbian, along with iPhone, Android and Windows Phone.

Today, the company has announced a version for Palm’s webOS, a niche platform if there ever was one. Although with HP’s acquisition of Palm, that will hopefully change. It’s also a particularly US-centric brand, so that could be telling in itself. On that note, it’s curious that RIM’s BlackBerry is still missing in action. Any theories on why? Jump in on the comments.

As with all of Spotify’s mobile apps, users will need a premium subscription to use the service on the go. The app itself can be downloaded from the webOS app store and provides the following functionality:

* Search, browse & play millions of tracks
* Offline playlists – listen to music with no mobile connection
* Wirelessly sync your local files to your phone
* View your friends’ top lists and see what playlists they’ve created
* Send & receive music from friends via the inbox
* Share music via Facebook, email and messaging
* Create, sync and edit playlists
* LastFM scrobbling

    Re Palm being a US centric brand. Actually, Palm is launching it’s new products in France first which might be a sign that they finally give up their US-first strategy. It would only make sense for them…

      Ah, yes. I’d forgotten about the Palm Pre 2 coming to France first. Probably HP’s influence in effect.

    Palm is a registered trademark centered in the U.S. Re. In fact, Palm has launched its new products in France, first, that could be a sign to finally give up its strategy in the United States first. That would only make sense for them.

    HP added that the touchpad will include dealing with its own built-in touch pad on the phone and phone service. However, the company did not support the full details of the operators.

    Jordan Shoes commercials that were extremely popular at the time. The Cheap Jordans same commercials that featured Lee as Mars Blackman insisting that “it’s got to be the Cheap Jordan Shoes“! These ads were quite effective in the marketing of the Air Jordan IV. In fact, a pair of Jordan 5 was featured in Lee’s movie “Do The Right Thing”.

    The market foundation if there ever was one. Although with HP’s getting Hand, that will hopefully modify. It is also a particularly US-centric company, so that could be informing in itself. It is inquisitive that RIM’s BlackBerry is still losing in measures.
