Spotify headed to U.S. this summer According to Bloomberg, the unlimited music streaming service Spotify will finally get to America in the Q3 2010.

Senior Vice President Paul Brown says that the company is negotiating with U.S. mobile phone providers over partnerships. Spotify is looking to add an app for BlackBerrys and Palm smartphones, as well.

"We're buying server space in random parts of the states and there are licensing discussions too. But they are going fine because were in a long-term partnership with the labels and publishers," says Brown.

Although the service is free and ad-supported, there are also 325,000 paid subscribers who pay 10 pounds per month to use the service ad-free.
