Spotify for iPad Review

The folks at Spotify have brought forth the next big iteration of their mobile app, this time make specifically for the iPad (of all shapes and sizes.)

It's time to have a look at the upgrade Spotify promised us this morning with a basic hands-on - will it live up to the hype? And more importantly perhaps, will it be worth the wait?
