SAN FRANCISCO, May 23, 2012/PRNewswire via African Press Organization (APO)/ -- The mobile music download and streaming application Spinlet will partner with Samsung Electronics in the launch of the brand's new Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 in Nigeria.

The partnership of the recently launched cloud based service, Spinlet, and one of the forerunners in digital design and technology, Samsung, allows for a groundbreaking opportunity for consumers to enjoy their favorite music on an advanced new smart phone with TouchWiz UI multi tasking and wi-fi capabilities.


The market for digital music in Africa has been untapped by any of the major music services to date. This opened the door for the partnership with Samsung to once again be a trendsetter. The Spinlet model allows independent musicians and bands in Africa to sell their music alongside other more prominent artists in Africa and from around the world. Spinlet also provides artists with tools to better understand their fan base and interact with them through social media. By providing the application pre-installed, Samsung significantly increases the amount of listeners and potential buyers of these artists' music. "In a country riddled by piracy, the free streaming and pay per download model that Spinlet and Samsung are providing to the market really helps create value in fans eyes and a revenue stream for artists," says Eric Idiahi, Spinlet Chairman.


According to Daesong Ra, Business Manager, Mobile Division Samsung Electronics West Africa, "Our proposition offers consumers smart phone experience that is not only affordable but 'Clearly Different, Clearly Smart.' The Samsung Galaxy pocket comes packed with over 400,000 free apps, faster internet connectivity at an amazing retail price of N18,900. In addition, consumers on the MTN network can enjoy 1 month free of internet data to experience these exciting smart phone solutions."


Spinlet and Samsung will host a collaborated launch party for the Samsung Galaxy Pocket, on Wednesday, May 23 at The Oriental Hotel as part of the high profile, on-going series, Industry Nite. Attendees will have a chance to win the brand-new Galaxy Pocket and mingle with music industry execs from all over Africa. Please contact Spinlet for more information on attending and/or covering the event.
