INQ to launch Spotify branded phone
INQ is poised to launch a Spotify branded phone, according to reports.
INQ Mobile CEO Frank Meehan said the manufacturer’s goal was to deeply integrate Spotify's services into its upcoming phones in an interview with Business Week.
Recent reports have suggested that the company is also making a Facebook branded handset. However, Mobile’s sources indicated that it is more likely INQ will launch a Facebook instant messaging service to rival RIM’s BBM.
INQ, which has worked with the social network before, already sells phones with Facebook features.
Meehan did not reveal any more detail about a Spotify branded phone, and also refused to comment on the Facebook rumours.
Spotify did not comment.
