BlackBerry Accessory Roundup Music Edition: Win a BlackBerry Music Gateway

This Week's BlackBerry Accessory Feature: BlackBerry Music Gateway

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.

BlackBerry Accessory Roundup Music Edition: Win a BlackBerry Music Gateway



i was looking to get something like this for my car to mount in my glovebox and out of the way.. perfect way to stream music!

This would be awesome to win.

I would like to win the BlackBerry Music Getaway. It would allow me to play Slacker and MLB 2010 on my home stereo!

I was just talking to my husband about this and how I NEEDED something like this so I could listen to music everywhere!! Please pick me!

Sounds good to me... I would use this all the time... the only problem is where to put it? In the basement which can be used while working out or shooting pool, or in the living room where well I am lazy?

Rockin' out w/ Pandora, Slacker, IheartRadio, Nobex, and my MP3's would seriously elevate to a whole new level with an accessory this awesome! Hope I win! Thanks, CB crew!



I am a big music fan and I would really love to have a device like this, especially since it would go great in my car and my home entertainment system.

As far as smart phone media players go, the BB Music Player is one of the best stock pieces out there. WinMo Media Player and Android MP both had serious issues with importing data. BB also has great iTunes support. I rather enjoy mine.

I'd enjoy it more with a new BT Music interface. :)

I listen to music on my BlackBerry all the time. I would love to win something like this to keep me rocking tunes on my phone.

Presenting professional development would never be the same if I could use this device. This is a device on top of my want list.

People just have to realize that a BlackBerry really can do it all, and that the iPod is still just a toy. Love the sound quality you can get out of a BB when listening to tunes!

I have been really wanting to get one of these for a while, I just haven't had the money to throw down for one. Winning this would be like christmas!

That would be great to have as a sound engineer. it would cut down on some of the gear i have to carry. and allow me to put my phone closer to me at the sound board.

I hate wires, if every thing in this world was wireless, it would be heaven.. but its not so make do with what I can. I use the Bluetooth Motorola S9-HD headset, I have a ton of music on my BB and Pandora is the greatest invetion since sliced bread! I have been looking to get one of these devices to use in my home and work vehicle and it would be awsome if I could win one!

I'm so tired of streaming music on my storm 2 and having to settle for a crappy tape adapter in my deck. I hope I win this and I'll finally have quality music in my car or anywhere I want!

stealing from the skillet song, i believe i'm a vapor, i just drink and lie...or from their better song. you are the one real thing the future brings... come my way...i'm just a man, not superhuman, just another day.,my voice will be heard today..we need a hero to save me just in time...

this one is awesome, a buddy of mine has it in his car, and it is just great...another great one from RIM is the presenter...

Id love to hook this up in my car, instead of buying a bluetooth addon device for my headunit which could cost me hundreds!

Hey Crackberry!

Great contest! I take advantage of the mp3 player on my Blackberry as is, and would LOVE to win this contest for Music consider me (pls) entered!

I use my BB in the car as my mp3 player, hooked into my stereo! I no longer use my Apple Ipod Touch...My BB Storm all the way!

All in one is the way to carrying multi devices!

I am constantly listening to music. I'm always on the go and my blackberry is my mp3 player. This would definitely make listening to music easier

If there's one thing I wish my BB had more of, it would be music. Unfortunately I didn't win the SD card so I'm still stuck with a 2GB card that is maxed out with music. This neat accessory fits me PERFECT. Please pull me out that hat of names! Good luck to everyone!

Me and the wifey are constantly fighting over the cords to plug in our berrys to jam Pandora. The blackberry gateway would save me a hasle and a beating. Would love to win this awsome gateway.

Just pick me to save this fragile, innocent little baby seal who unfortunately for him, can not function as a BlackBerry Music Gateway to save his life.

I was hoping to win the 16GB microSD card in the last contest, since I lost my 8GB one when my 9700 was stolen recently, but it looks like i'm gonna have to buy myself one. It would be amazing to win this instead though. I am almost constantly listening to music on my BlackBerry via aux input, so much so that the headphone jack on my old 9700 began to think there was a headset connected even when there wasn't. I hope I win!
