Spotify for BlackBerry arrives, sort of

By Gary Johnson - Oct 19, 2011

Owners of the BlackBerry have been having a tough time of it recently with the service being down for around three days. Users are to be rewarded though with the choice of some free applications as a way of compensation for the outage. Now we have what could be some more good news for some users as Spotify for BlackBerry arrives, sort of.

Many users of the service probably thought the Spotify service would never arrive, but now finally the Swedish music streaming company has released a preview build of the app that anyone can download. Electricpig are reporting that all the normal Spotify mobile features are promised, which include offline playlists,, and search.

Of course you will also need a Spotify Premium subscription to use the service, but also the correct BlackBerry device. This is where the problem currently lies as the new service will only work on GSM devices, so users in the US are out of luck for now. The only devices the service will work on include the BlackBerry Bold 9780, Bold 9700, Curve 9300, Bold 9000, and Curve 8520.

This will mean anyone owning the more recent BlackBerry 7 or the Torch and Storm touchscreen devices can’t get the service for the time being. The press image revealing the service does show two devices running Blackberry 7 though.

Spotify at the moment are not revealing if extra devices are to be added soon, but did announce the application will be put onto the App World when it leaves the beta stage. Will you be downloading the beat for Spotify?
