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!



My wife hates my music. It will really bum her out if I can stream them from my Curve to the home theater. "I know it's only rock 'n roll, but I like it." (Richards/Jagger). "I love rock 'n roll. Put another dime in the jukebox, baby." (Jett)

Oh yessss, I need this! Currently having to plug my Berry into my home stereo, leaving it there and not in my pocket. I feel naked without my Berry on me.

I need this! I have my main audio components in one room and tend to listen to them on speakers in other rooms. Being able to stream from my most amazing tool (my Blackberry) would be outstanding.

I've been thinking about getting this for at least the past 6 months! Winning one would make the decision so much easier! Thanks!

I debated about buying one of these...winning one would be that much sweeter! Now if only I could stream my 500 gig of music from my pc to my blackberry...lol

Oh man, sign me up. This is awesome, I have 8gb's of music on my BB now. PORTABLE JUKEBOX - added to the list of things my coolphone can do

I use my music player on my BB Torch all the time and love it, this would be a great addition for me! :)

BlackBerry Music Gateway perfect thing to use at home, in the car or at friends place.
Way should you just let them play their music, spin your sound to.

Great thing to have.

A great contest n a greater prize!!! WouLd love to win the music gateway ...... The gateway to life!

I am very interested in how you got this to work in your car. That would be sweet to listen to your podcast while driving to work.

just invested in a larger media card to store all the music i'm listening to on my bb mp3 player -- i mean bb bold 9650 ;) so what could go better with it than this?! thank you crackberry!

This could be a really handy device to use. Does anyone know if a phone call will interrupt the music or does the music keep playing if a call comes in??
