RIM's BlackBerry Music Gateway is setting its eyes for an arrival in June for $49.99
As June quickly approaches, RIM is aiming to complement its existing line of BlackBerry devices, like the Bold 9900 and PlayBook, by bringing to market its BlackBerry Music Gateway.

No doubt something that’ll be particularly interesting to grads and dads that have a soft spot for all things music, the BlackBerry Music Gateway provides the ability to wirelessly stream songs from their BlackBerry device, to a home or car stereo system. Not only does it connect with devices via Bluetooth connectivity, but the Music Gateway has the advantageous ability to quickly pair with devices that are NFC enabled. Essentially, all you’ll have to do is tap your NFC enabled BlackBerry, and voila, instant pairing without all of the hassles.

At heart, it’ll obviously provide owners the ability to stream songs that are stored locally on a BlackBerry, and even better, it can also steam music from other apps such as BBM Music, Pandora, or Slacker Radio. Naturally, you’ll need to stay within approximately 30 feet away from the Music Gateway in order to maintain a connection, but anywhere in between, you’ll have full control of what’s being played.

Despite lacking concrete date for its release, the BlackBerry Music Gateway is mentioned to arrive sometime in June for $49.99. Therefore if you’re looking for a gift for a dad or grad, especially those who happen to have a thing for music, you should keep this one in for consideration.

Great stuff- I've just downloaded O/S 7.1 onto my 9860 which means if I tap my car stereo it should play music I have stored on BB Music?

But you can set it up through standard bluetooth just, like I did with my PlayBook. :) this device is awesome!
