BlackBerry Music Gateway

BlackBerry users don't immediately think "music" when firing up their device, but lets face it, most of us want it all in one place so we don't have to carry extra devices. Playing music on your BlackBerry may be annoying at first, but once you get it squared away you can rock out anytime you want with the help of some great accessories. The coolest (and one of my long time favorites) is the BlackBerry Music Gateway. This nifty little accessory lets you stream your music via Bluetooh to external speakers so you can jam almost anywhere. I use it in my house connected to an external speaker, and can carry around my device in my pocket without worrying about having to go to a specific spot in the house to change the track or volume. I've even managed to get it working in my car so I can bring my music on the go.

The BlackBerry Music Gateway just needs a charge from your Mini USB charger. Unfortunately it isn't included with the device, but if you have an older model BlackBerry you should have one laying around. You can always grab one from our store that will get the job done as well.

If you're at all a music listener, you should really explore just what you can do with a BlackBerry to stream your music. If you want to load it up with MP3's just grab an SD card, load it up and you're good to go. If you want to save on space, you can stream right from Pandora or Slacker and tweak each to your liking. No longer do you need to haul around an MP3 player along with your BlackBerry to have your music on the go.

Weekly Accessory Roundup: Stream your music with a BlackBerry Music Gateway - Leave a comment to win one!



Great info... I was wondering if one of these things existed. It's nice to know that RIM makes them. That will be a nice replacement to plugging my BB into my receiver.

This is one of those things that is just awesome. It actually works with other devices (not just BlackBerry). We have one at work and it is nice to be able to stream Pandora or Slacker over the work audio system. I would love to have one of my own for home!

dear Crackberry,
Times are tough out here and I do everything I can to make sure kids are fed have meds and clothes for there school. I also make sure the most wonderful person ( my girlfriend ) it in no need. This means alot of going without on my part, so please forgive me if I beg and say PLEASE PLEASE OOH OOH OOH PLEASE PICK ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I REALLY WANT ONE OF THESE BUT JUST CAN'T SPARE THE MONEY. It is bad enought that I have a really slow data 1x only, so my blackberry is not up to par with others but it is the only way I can afford a blackberry. ( metro pcs ) please consider me and pick me for this one. I hope i dont sound selfish, I just want something nice for me this time. thanks,


Hmm... I love music. And I love my BlackBerry. It only seems natural that I would REALLY love to stream my music through my BlackBerry. I must have this!!

I've wanted one of these for a while! I would use it in my stereo system at home, and maybe even use it in my car! It's portable!!! What a great concept!

Music is one of the first thoughts I have when firing up my BB. Main reason I went to the 8100 was for ineternet and music capability. This would complete my music ability with my BB! Thanks, CB!

I saw a video of this in action and it is awesome. I would love to have one of my own. I can think of so many ways to use this.

*drool* I would so love to rock the house (and patio) with a BlackBerry Music Gateway patched into my whole-house audio system! Friends and neighbors would turn green with envy as I switch music tracks without ever stepping away from the steaks sizzling on my grill.

I was just looking at this yesterday. Lots less wear and tear on my headphone jack if I don't have to plug in and out multiple times a day in my car. Yay!

How random are these picking of random comments? Would a longer comment or perhaps a funny one give us some extra chances? :D

This would be freaking awesome!!! I don't use my ipod at all anymore. I put any music I'm interested in or currently listening to on my SD card for my 9650. Currently I have about 2000 songs on my 16g card. BB has a good simple to use mp3 player. :)

How awesome!!! I need one. Right now I have to plug my storm 2 into the stereo at home...but I bluetooth it in my truck and via headphone at work. Thanks for the contest!!!

I really could use this. My dorm room is infested with iPhones and Android phones playing music! I would show them all up with my wireless music capabilities. Beat that!!

I actually LOVE this product, HOWEVER with no battery and the fact that it doesn't come with a charger.. and takes a mini-usb (my tour takes micro)... ummm I love it but it could be better.
