The two have agreed to put music and videos from various Def Jam artists on a limited edition model of the W910i Walkman phone.

Def Jam sees the arrangement as an “interesting and relevant way” to reach its target audience in the UK, mocoNews reports.

In a similar type of deal, Samsung will be selling its F400 music phone in France preloaded with Madonna‘s upcoming “Hard Candy” album.
