BlackBerry Music Gateway goes on sale today for $49.99 online
Well folks, the timing couldn’t be any better on this one, as the BlackBerry Music Gateway is now available for purchase. Previously, we were all made aware about an impending June release, but a concrete release date wasn’t explicitly mentioned.

For any BlackBerry trotting individuals, the Music Gateway will be a perfect companion since it’ll wirelessly play music on your device to your home or car stereo system. Well, it’ll still work with any Bluetooth enabled device – so you don’t necessarily need a BlackBerry to use it.

Some of its features include the following:

  • Simple Connectivity – Using NFC, simply tap your NFC enabled BlackBerry to connect to the BlackBerry Music Gateway, or connect via standard Bluetooth pairing.
  • Universal Compatibility - Play 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 Freedom: Use your device as the remote for complete control of playback, track changes, and volume from up to 30 feet.
  • 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.

Therefore, if you happen to use some sort of streaming service, like RIM’s very own BBM Music, you’ll be able to now share the music love with everyone around you – as opposed to trying to do it with the dinky internal speakers of your smartphone. Right now, you can place an order through shopblackberry.com for $49.99, but it’s worth noting that you’ll need to at least hit the exact mark of $50 in order to qualify for free shipping.
