BlackBerry Music Gateway goes on sale


You many remember that when I was at BlackBerry World last month we showed you a video of the new BlackBerry Music Gateway that RIM were demonstrating.

If you are not familiar with the product I will summarize it. Essentially, the Gateway is a small gadget that connects to your TV or stereo system and by using NFC on your BlackBerry you connect your device to it with a quick tap and then control music output and volume controls via the handset itself. Not only perfect for at home but great for parties allowing multiple users to play what ever music they happen to have on their BlackBerry.  I don’t have a UK price as yet but the in the USA the Music Gateway is priced at $49.99 which seems very reasonable.

If you missed my hands on video you can see it again below and we will of course have one of these in for a review ASAP.

BlackBerry Music Gateway


  • 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.
