Spotify streaming music mobile demo for Android [Video]

Spotify, who provide a free music streaming service, have demonstrated their new mobile client on the T-Mobile G1.  The new Android app - which is yet to be released - allows tracks to be synchronized with the handset for offline playback, meaning that even without WiFi or cellular data music can be played back. The app also supports on-device searches and custom playlists, with straightforward access to the company's huge catalog of tracks.  It's also synchronized with their existing desktop app, meaning you can search for and add a track on the desktop and have it sync for offline playback on the cellphone. As a desktop Spotify user, this is just what I've been waiting for.  The company has previously said that they'd be requiring mobile users to sign up for their premium service (which cuts out the adverts that intermittently pop up for free account holders) and frankly this looks well worth it.  No word on when we could expect to see a release; they're promising more details at Google I/O.

Because music streaming services like Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, etc are all the craze right now, we sometimes forget that people also still store actual music on their mobile devices.

Cyanogen raises $80M for anti-Google warchest

It’s been a while since someone had the guts and the cojones to take on Google at its own game, but most forward-looking people in the industry agree that it’s right about time someone did. Enter the loud and confident Kirt McMaster, CEO of Cyanogen, Inc., last year’s enfant terrible of the mobile tech industry. His most recent fundraising round generated around USD$80 million, even famously without Microsoft’s support, and everything seems to be “green-and-go” for Cyanogen OS.

Sony to no longer pursue sales growth in smartphone, TV business

While Sony surprised even themselves with a recent financial report that showed they actually earned a profit, the shrinking sales in both their smartphone and TV business has led CEO Kazuo Hirai to almost admit defeat in those two sectors. He has recently said the company will no longer pursue sales growth in those areas and will instead focus on products that are actually bringing them profit, which includes the Playstation and camera sensors for mobile devices.
