We never thought we’d say this again after last week’s horrify service outage, but it’s actually kind of a good week to be a Blackberry owner! When you’re done downloading free $100 worth of free apps to your Blackberry Curve, point your browser over towards Spotify, because the mega-popular music service just rolled out a long-awaited app to bring its tunes to RIM devices… kind of.
Kind of, you see, because the app is still in a beta-like “Preview” stage. In fact, Spotify will only go so far as it say that it will only definitely work with the 9780 Bold, 9700 Bold, 9300 Curve, 9000 Bold and 8520 Curve, and only on GSM networks, although the company did tell TechRadar that it works with Blackberry OS 7 devices like the Blackberry Bold Touch 9900, too.
You’ll only be able to use the app if you’re a subscriber to Spotify’s $10/mo. premium service, though – no mobile music for free listeners. You can expect the same mobile functionality that is found in the company’s Android, iOS and Windows Phone 7 apps, including full access to the streaming Spotify library as well as the ability to listen to songs offline. You can only get it from Spotify currently; the final version will be available on the Blackberry App World.
