Spotify phones to come from Telia; the UK might get them too
Telia, the largest Swedish mobile operator, announced that it has signed a 2-yr agreement with Spotify, agreement that will bring new Spotify music services for mobile phones, computers and “eventually TV”.
The Swedish carrier, owned by TeliaSonera, intends to release Spotify phones, but it didn’t give further details about them. A “mobile offering” should be launched in Sweden in the coming months, although it’s not clear yet if this means that the actual Spotify phones will be launched by then.
According to Pocket-lint, Spotify-branded phones will also be available from operators in the UK – maybe via 3, since Hutchison Whampoa has recently invested in Spotify.
“Swedish people love music and for the connected generation, being able to take their favorite music with them wherever they go is a given. That is why we are making preparations to launch Spotify mobile phones, which will make it even easier to get started and listen to music wherever and whenever you want to,” declared Erik Hallberg, Head of Mobility Services at TeliaSonera in Sweden.
Spotify’s music services are currently used by more than 5.5 million people worldwide.
