  • Browse and play your friends' Spotify top tracks, artists , and playlists (I was surprised to see how many of my Facebook friends were on Spotify and even more surprising to see what they're rockin').
  • Pin your playlists as Live Tiles to your Start screen for fast access (something I've done numerous times with the Bluetooth stereo connection in my car).
  • Play music in the background while running other apps or when your phone is locked.
  • Pause, play, or change tracks when your phone is locked with universal controls
You can download the Spotify app from the Marketplace. Spotify is available as a Windows Phone app in the nine countries where Spotify is currently available: USA, UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway, France, The Netherlands, Denmark and Spain.

Samsung overtakes Apple to become New Smartphone Leader!

Samsung became the new leader in the worldwide smartphone market, with total smartphone shipments topping the 20 million unit mark for the first time in the company's history. As in previous quarters, its Android-powered smartphones drove volumes higher, and joining the product mix was Samsung's refreshed Galaxy S II. In addition, its bada-powered smartphones continued to gain salience in the market, and a new Windows Phone smartphone is expected to launch in 4Q11

Apple fell to No. 2, shipping 17.1 million phones for a 14.5 percent share.

Nokia kept its hold on the No. 3 position, selling 16.8 million handsets for a 14.2 percent share. 

HTC shipped 12.7 million for a 10.8 percent share took 4th place.

RIM with 11.8 million units shipped and 10 percent market share was in fifth place.

But the launch of iPhone 4S will change the positions again in 4th Quarter. IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said, "Apple's fourth quarter launch of the iPhone 4S and lower pricing of older models will certainly boost volumes, and Nokia's recent launch of Windows Phone smartphones marks the beginning of a new era for the company."

Samsung Galaxy S III to take charge next year?

The Galaxy S 2 is considered to be a huge success, but how can Samsung top it next year? Well one way is with a flexible Galaxy S III, and because Apple uses Sammy for some of their components there is no reason why the iPhone 5 cannot have the same kind of design. However, this could open up a whole can of worms between the two companies. Samsung is not the first phone maker to show off flexible displays, but you know that once they are focused on something they will become the biggest. The technology was shown off earlier this year during CES 2011, but PC World believes that it will start to be used on devices in 2012.

We have taken a stab in the dark that the Galaxy S III could offer a flexible design, but we cannot help but think that the technology still has a way to go. You only have to look at the current batch of smartphones, they struggle to last a day even with a battery the size they are.

Let’s be more sensible about this, Samsung will come out with a flexible display next year, but they will only be used on an ePaper or maybe even a TV.
