...and their mobile offering. Not an especially strong competitor in my view, but P respectfully shed some price in front of next week's event. I admit, I did not see this event coming. P price will digest this and move higher imo. Spotify's presence is nothing new.
you are really injecting a lot of bias here... spoitfy is a major competitor with much better music platform/ecosystem that contains radio as just one of many features. up until now not having a free mobile offering made them a non-competitor in the mobile free music world. so, i completely disagree with you, there is now a new competitor for pandora and it's a major threat
