The 5800 will support the new application

Music lovers recycling mobile phones for a new Nokia may well be interested in the latest announcement from one service provider.

Spotify has unveiled details of a new application that has been designed specifically for use with the Finnish manufacturer's line of Symbian-equipped smartphones.

Devices like the Nokia 6220 Classic, E71 and 5800 XpressMusic will now have the access to the streaming audio software, while certain devices in the Sony Ericsson and Samsung range will also support the new widget.

Spotify explained that this means a broad catalogue of albums and songs are now available to subscribers, with the application able to run in the background should users need to send a text, make a call or surf the internet.

Gustav Soderstrom, director of portable solutions at the group, said: "The launch of [the] Symbian app opens up our mobile music service to potentially millions more music fans across Europe."

Spotify was recently launched on the HTC Hero via the 3 Mobile network.
