Motorola's Moto Stream is here to "set music free" (and no, it's not a smartphone)

The Moto Stream is pretty small, weighs 140 grams, and has a multi-faced icosahedron shape. It plugs into a speaker or stereo system, allowing you to connect it to your mobile device via Bluetooth 3.0. Thus, it brings the convenience of wirelessly streaming songs to your otherwise wired audio system. The Moto Stream supports up to five simultaneous Bluetooth connections to smartphones running Android, iOS, or Windows Phone. The device has a 300 feet range, and can even be paired via NFC.
Motorola is selling the Moto Stream starting today for $49.99, and you can get it online at the second source link below. Starting June 6, Radio Shack stores will also sell the wireless adapter. For the moment, the Moto Stream seems to be available only in the US, with no word on a possible release in other regions.
Of course, there are other similar wireless adapters on the market, but Moto's Stream seems pretty cool. What do you think?

Nexus Q, round 2? Not that I have a problem with that, I always thought the Q was a cool concept.

The Chromecast was what the Nexus Q was supposed to be. A device connected to your TV that you could communicate with by using your phone to stream media to.

Seems cool but... "The Moto Stream supports up to five simultaneous Bluetooth connections to smartphones running Android, iOS, or Windows Phone." How does this work regarding music... if I have 2 devices SIMULTANEOUSLY paired to the Stream... what device would play music?

Wow, since when do motorola phones have a second menu bar? The scriptgirl must have been asleep while shooting this commercial, I hope the first lenovorola phone isn't going to be as sloppy. This ad did probably cost thousands of dollars and nobody noticed this?

Motorola is a bit late to the party.. This for example is HTC's offering from May 2012 http ://cdn2.ubergizmo.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/htc-music-adoptor.jpg (delete the spaces) And I think I'd rather this simple design than a multi-faced icosahedron...

This does sound like a cool idea, and I like the design. I know it's been done already, and its usefulness would be limited for me (I've never invested in wired speaker systems) but I know some people who could make use out of this.
