SoundHound Bundled with Future HTC Android devices


SoundHound has announced today, a partnership with HTC to include their popular SoundHound app or Android pre-installed on HTC Android devices. The offer will begin with the HTC Desire HD and Desire Z devices.

Android application developers are starting to see the potential of pre-installing their apps on devices, which ends up boosting exposure to their app, and possibly, upgrade revenue. This can add up exponentially given the growth of activated Android devices this year, and the projections for next. I have the paid version of this app, and it’s awesome!!

We’re assuming that the offer will only include the free version (5 song look-ups per month) rather than the paid, but we’ll soon know for sure.

Bold, and smart move SoundHound!

    SoundHound came pre-installed on my Desire HD. I can confirm that unfortunately, it is only the free version you get, and you still have to pay the $4.99 upgrade price if you want unlimited tagging.
