Mobile Phone operator 3 UK have launched a new package/subscription bundle with Spotify on the new Android Hero Handset.

Surprisingly its the first bundle of its kind. Customers will pay £35 per month and will take advantage of 750 minutes, unlimited texts to other 3 phone numbers, mobile data and a premium subscription to Spotify’s streaming service worth $9.99 per month. Faisal Galaria, Global Head of Business Development at Spotify is understandably positive: “This is a very exciting deal for Spotify. We’re intent on offering people a high quality, simple yet powerful portable music experience at a fair price and we’re thrilled to be working with 3 to bring Spotify to UK music fans.”

The HTC Hero will be the first Android handset to launch on 3, coming out the November. Billed as an iPhone killer, it has a touch screen, five megapixel camera, personalisation features and access to thousands of applications from Android Marketplace.
