Spotify hat offiziell den bevorstehenden US-Launch angekündigt. Ein genaues Datum nennt Spotify nicht.
In addition to Rhapsody, Mog and Rdio are the other two main big-name competitors, and there are also a host of smaller names snapping at their heels and Pandora (NYSE: P) occupying the non-interactive streaming space.
Another key factor means Spotify may not replicate its European growth pace in America – its customer acquisition strategy has changed. Spotify boomed after its launch in October 2008 not just because its app was slick but also because it offered unlimited free desktop music with ads.
