Sony Ericsson (via the Sony Ericsson Product Blog) announced today that the Spotify service will now be integrated deep into the Timescape and Mediascape shell on the SE Xperia X10. The integration allows Spotify to show as an online media service in Mediascape, and your recently played songs will appear in the Timescape timeline. Check out the video -- it's pretty sweet.
The drawback for some of us (OK, a lot of us) is that Spotify isn't available in the U.S., but then again, neither is the X10. This is an idea I would like to see catch on, and other manufacturers with custom Android UI's weaving Slacker or Pandora into the OS would be welcomed here. [via Unwired view]
