Research in Motion (RIM) has revealed its audio streaming BlackBerry Music Gateway.
The small near-field communication (NFC) enabled gadget allows users to wirelessly stream music to a hi-fi, car stereo or other audio sources. The BlackBerry Music Gateway will be available in June with a US price of $49.
“Once connected to the BlackBerry Music Gateway, customers are able to control their music from up to 30 feet away from the stereo, without missing a single beat.”
The BlackBerry Music Gateway plugs into to any sound equipment via a 3.5mm audio jack. Tapping an NFC capable BlackBerry on the device automatically connects it for streaming. Any handset paired with the Music Gateway can be used as a remote control for the stereo.
Furthermore, other apps can be used at the same time and the music will automatically pause for the duration of a phone call.
