Sprint’s Harman-Kardon HTC One M8 revealed with six months of free Spotify

If you don’t remember, Sprint had a little shindig up in New York City earlier today where they announced an exclusive version of the HTC One M8.

It’s the Harman-Kardon edition, which comes with special Harman-Kardon front-facing speakers, Harman-Kardon branding on the back and a very slick two-tone combination of black and champagne metal. You’ll also get hooked up with some pretty stylish headphones with an inline media control remote.

More than that, though, users on Framily plans will be treated to six free months of Spotify access, which is the premium music streaming service that had everyone going nuts until Google Play Music came along. Beyond that you’ll get it for $8 per month for 24 months, which is just a couple bucks cheaper than standard pricing.

Staying on the road of music, Sprint’s “Sound Sessions” will offer up suggestions for new music for you to check out, and will presumably give you exclusive first access to whatever tunes they’ll be serving up before the rest of gen-pop gets their hands on it. The Harman-Kardon edition will be on sale online this Friday, May 2nd, and will be trotting its way into stores an exact week from then. The device will run you about $28 per month for 24 months with $0 down.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play edition lands in the Play Store… sorta

  3. Man that looks pretty sleek. I really wanna know how much of a difference in audio quality between this and the normal M8.

    1. if it is true Harman-Kardon engineering…. it should sound superior to beats audio…or boom sound

    Yeah, right. I bet this is just some cross branding HTC is paying for.
