Update 07/02/13 - BlackBerry 10 has now launched in the UK and Canada, and sales look good!
Hopefully you are aware that BlackBerry will finally (hopefully) be launching their completely new and redesigned operating system, BB10 in January 2013 in the UK and canada, with other countries to follow soon!
I think it would be awesome if Spotify could give BlackBerry some loving, and have a fully functional and fully featured application ready when the new devices become available. The current BlackBerry client lacks serveral of the features of other mobile operating systems.
BlackBerry are so desperate to get applications on their new platform, I'm sure they would be willing to work with you guys directly to get this implemented in time! It might even be possible and relatively easy to port the android version over as BB10 has android application support! It will also be reaching a larger market as it will run on BB10 phones and the BlackBerry Playbook when it also gets updated.
Just a suggestion for now, I know 2013 is still a few months of, but I just think it would be amazing to have spotify ready to go on these devices.
Please can we have this as soon as possible and not let it be another WP8 long wait!
Android sideload possibly working?: Check out this post.
Considering the amount of kudos this idea has received we’ve done some serious soul searching and we’ve had numerous internal discussions. However, we don't have plans to offer an official Blackberry app at this time.
We’re aware that someone managed to get the Android client working on Blackberry as well. However, building a native app for Blackberry is another animal entirely.
At the moment we're unable to build, keep it up and running, dedicate resources to updating it in parallel to our major platforms, along with making sure all the separate bits inside the client remain compatible and fully functional, doing QA; the list goes on.
