If you use a BlackBerry 7 and love your music device the Music Gateway may well be your perfect accessory. We first saw the device at BlackBerry World back in May of this year but the gadget is now on sale in North America and I presume the UK launch will happen at any time as RIM sent me one.
Essentially you connect the BlackBerry Music Gateway to your sound system and then pair your BlackBerry smartphone with it via NFC. Your BlackBerry then acts as a remote control and streams your music from your phone – simple.
Connections Made Simple – Using NFC, simply tap your NFC enabled BlackBerry to connect to the BlackBerry Music Gateway, or connect via standard Bluetooth for universal connectivity of any Bluetooth enabled device such as smartphones, tablets and computers
Enjoy Wireless Freedom – Stream music from your BlackBerry smartphone, BlackBerry PlayBook, or any other Bluetooth enabled device. BlackBerry Music Gateway connects to any existing home stereo equipment or car stereo using the RCA or 3.5mm cables included in the box
Wireless Remote Control – Use your device as the remote for complete control of playback, track changes, and volume.
Multitasking – Access other applications or surf the web while playing music. Music automatically pauses when an incoming phone call is received and continues when the call is ended without skipping a beat.
