Spotify has finally launched a BlackBerry app, allowing crackberry addicts to access its premium service from your phone, as long as you’re not the proud owner of a BlackBerry Torch 9800.
The preview version of the long-awaited Spotify app is compatible with most other BlackBerry phones currently on the market and requires a premium subscription (£ 10 per month) to stream songs to your phone.
BlackBerry owners can download the preview app from Spotify now, or put it on hold for the fully tested final version which will soon be available on BlackBerry App World.
All of Spotify’s traditional mobile features are included – stream songs, create playlists, cache songs to play offline, feature your favorite tracks, and stream music to Last.fm.
The complete list of phones compatible with the new Spotify app for BlackBerry is: BlackBerry Bold 9780, Bold 9700, Curve 9300, Bold 9000 and Curve 8520 on GMS networks. You can download the preview app from here.
It is not yet clear whether handsets running BlackBerry OS 7.0 like the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 can handle the new app, and we assume that the QNX-based PlayBook will need separate software as well – we are awaiting confirmation from Spotify and / or RIM on that.
Update: RIM told TechRadar that the app supports BlackBerry OS 7.0 devices (hurray!) But the PlayBook is another story – no word on either company’s dedicated PlayBook app.
It is Spotify’s sixth mobile app, joining Spotify for iOS, Android, Symbian, Palm, and Windows Phone.
