The Spotify edition of the HTC Hero Android mobile phone goes on sale today exclusively on 3.
Priced £35 per month over 24-months, plus an upfront charge of £97.86 for the handset, the special offer entitles buyers to the Spotify Premium service. This allows unlimited streaming of music as well as the chance to compile playlists.
Also included in the contract are 750 any-network call minutes per month as well as unlimited text messages and 3-to-3 calls and restriction-free use of email, internet and Facebook.
The launch of the new tariff comes after the HTC Hero recently scooped two high profile awards from Stuff and T3 magazines, which named the handset Gadget of the Year and Phone of the Year respectively.
Features of the Hero include a five megapixel camera with autofocus, a 3.2-inch touchscreen display and an onboard media player.
As with all Android mobiles, Google applications, including Gmail, YouTube, GoogleTranslate, GoogleMaps and Facebook, come pre-installed with the Hero on purchase.
