And I dont mean that in a general sense, because there is something specific that I want.
Namely Spotify for my cell phone. The image you see here is of a Samsung Omnia I900
that uses Windows Mobile 6.1 One of the pretty easy OS’es to code for really, however
I am guessing that Microsoft has some fingers in the game in all of this wich makes
it harder for the guys at spotify to create a client for it. But come on, can easily, in my
circle of friends, count 5 that has windows based cellphones just because we dont want to
A: Get shafted by Apple and locked down to them to be able to use any software or B:
Simply the feel of the Windows Mobile that you have gotten used to.
However, now spotify is available for Android, Iphone and Symbian. How about
giving me the excuse to get my premium account? Right now the only difference
between the 99 SEK version and free version for me is that 1 contains commercials
and the other dont. So, for me theres not really a viable thing to put my money
into since even with the commercials, its still better then radio.
I dont really see the pain in getting something ready from spotify to windows mobile
systems, seeing that there are actually people that has made their own applications
that does just that. Stream to your windows mobile phone. It still requires premium
account and I can live with that, I still think its weak that the inhouse programmers
is slower then someone who does not have direct access to the source code tho, and
that is what really gets me going.
