More Spotify lovers will now be able to enjoy the streaming music service on the go, after mobile network 3 announced that they will be adding the Spotify mobile app to its range of Symbian OS mobile phones.
The HTC Hero was previously the only handset on the 3 network to benefit from Spotify’s recently launched mobile application which is currently available as an iPhone, Android and Nokia app.

Among the headline-grabbing Symbian handsets on offer are the Sony Ericsson Satio and the Nokia N96, although 3 is also offering it to the lower-end Symbian phones too.
The cost of the application is in keeping with Spotify Premium, which is available at £9.99 over six months.
However, there won’t be a repeat of the two-year bundle deal 3 offers with the HTC Hero, as it seeks to expand the choice for its music loving mobile customers.
The chaps at Spotify will surely be happy with an increase in its portable presence, while Nokia on the other hand might well be thinking it’s another blow to its own Comes With Music service.
