Google To Launch New Phone With Spotify App
Google is expected to unveil Nexus One mobile phone on Jan. 5 and it may include an Android 2.1-based Spotify application, which would allow subscribers to access and sync their music catalog, according to a TechCrunch report. While the deal is pending, Google would pay label fees of $3 to $4 per user and Spotify would make additional revenue via advertising. The Spotify app could make the Google phone a legitimate music competitor to Apple's iPhone, but the app would only be available to European users until Spotify is officially launched in the United States.
