Sony Ericsson To Integrate Spotify With Xperia X10 Smartphone

Sony Ericsson has managed to integrate popular online streaming music service Spotify with the Timescape and Mediascape, both content management systems that are unique to SE's Xperia X10 Android-based smartphone.

Rikard Skogberg wrote a post (opens in new tab) on Sony Ericsson's blog showing an example of service integration in Timescape (see below). The demo was carried out on behlaf of mobile network operator Telia in Sweden, where Spotify originates.

According to Rikard, the integration allows Spotify to be presented as an online music service through Mediascape while songs played through Spotify appear as event "tiles" in Timescape.

The Xperia X10 is already available on 3 UK which is the only mobile phone network in the UK that officially allows Spotify Premium. Neither the network, nor SE have said when the service will be officially released here.
