UK music lovers and Android hopefuls have quite the treat coming to them by way of Three, HTC, and Spotify. While here in the states, we have yet to be able to partake of this wonderful streaming service, Spotify, European users are diving in like none other.

**A quick refresher in case you don’t know the awesomeness that is Spotify — Spofitfy allows users to stream practically any song over WiFi/3G as well as cache playlists on the device for times when you don’t have data coverage.

Now, getting back on topic, Spotify has signed a new deal with UK cell provider “Three”. The new deal is simply awesome. You take Spotify, an awesome music streaming and offline music service and tie it into a contract with Three all ported through an HTC Hero, the the best second best (the Moto Sholes is now numero uno) Android device available, giving you a match made in digital heaven. The contract as I’m sure you’d all love to know includes the following pricing scheme:

  • £99 up front
  • £35 a monthly subscription
  • 750 minutes of cross network minutes
  • Unlimited texts, data and free Three to Three calls
  • (2) FULL years of Spotify Premium access via your phone, PC, or Mac

All I can see from the information above is a deal. Don’t you? Psh, looking at what I get for just a washington short of $100/month on AT&T for a single line with 450 minutes, unlimited text, and unlimited data makes me want to cry. Looking past the higher initial cost of hardware in European markets, their plans can be quite amazing as you can see. It’s times like these that make me yearn for a relocation to lands across the sea. Am I alone?

Three hasn’t announced the HTC Hero bundle w/ Spotify features yet. But it is coming so don’t fret. In the meantime, you can sign up right here when the bundle does become available. Waiting games are such a bittersweet affair are they not?

If the HTC Hero isn’t quite your thing, Spotify has also announced that other ways of connecting with their Premium service via many more devices is coming soon. Stay tuned!

    The HTC Hero offers a highly customizable user interface thanks to HTC Sense. It also improves on past Android devices with Outlook e-mail, calendar, and contacts synchronization, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 5-megapixel camera. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support are all onboard.
