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



Seems like a great device! Since my ipod went bye bye, my Storm has been my main music player. I would love one!

listen to music all the time on my blackberry since i have an hour's drive to and from work this would get me going before work and calm me down on the way home.

I use my curve 8320 to stream music at home and in the car via Pandora. I use the AUX option with a cable to connect from the berry to the system. Doing it via bluetooth would be a nice option.

This would be wonderful my husband who gets to start driving again after a 3-month hiatus because of sudden cardiac death, and his birthday is coming up early May, too.

For my storm, cases and bluetooth accessories are a must. These are Great. Hopefully I win one of these.

Realy cool to have blackberry music gateway, so i can take my blackberry anywhere in my house and office. no need to worry about cable and anything else that could end up with stuck on something that could broke something ... (been there once)

WOW, alot of people signed up for it...Its a long shot for me to win, but so worth the text ink to enter!!

Can you see me all the way down here at the bottom of the posts? I hope so, because I sure would like a lil' gizmo such as that. Holla if ye ont to. =)

A lot better I bet than the device I bought to play music via bluetooth and returned. It was a Motorolla product and sucked.

This would seriously work in the man-cave. Tired of having to walk over to the ipod dock or keep a remote on me while I'm working.

This is a great idea and even if you don't have all your music crammed into your device streaming pandora or remote access to tunes to remote speakers sounds like a hawt idea.

That looks great. I currently use a motorola device to stream audio in my bedroom and it works really well but this looks way better and much more portable. I want one to replace my motorola one.

Very nice thing !!!
I was really looking for something like that since a long time !

I am using my bluetooth headset for outdoors but I really would like to try this thing while at the office !

I would love to have a Music Gateway for my Curve. My car doesn't have a fancy iPod integration kit just an Aux jack, so I know the Music Gateway will be a great addition to my increasingly boring... 6 CD changer.

Thanks CrackBerry!

I've been pleasantly surprised at how well my Berry performs as a music player. Team it up with 7digital and your all set!

This would be an awesome addition to my berry! i use it for music daily, i think the audio jack only gets seperated from the phone when in the car ( i use a moto rokr t505 there) Have been thinking about purchasing, but winning one would be a heck of alot sweeter!! lol

I would love to actually win one of these giveaways, and this would be such a perfect component for my college apartment!!! PLEASE pick me!

I'm from Colombia, owner of a 9700 BB, in my country the accessories are very difficult to find, all I had to my phone, was bought on ebay. This is a good gadget to keep the music on the go, If I don't won it, I will looking ebay.... sorry my poor encglish.

i take my bb curve EVERYWHERE i go and all i do is play music from it like all day! i would love to win this!

I love this idea. My buddy has this for his iphone, although it allows him to stream from his laptop. I hope bberry comes up w/ that option. How far does the bluetooth work?

This thing is absolutely awesome.
A must have for any real audiophile like yours truly.
Please Crackberry Gods endow me with this holy music machine!

This is definitely a good one. i love this one, and the Blackberry presenter. Seems that RIM is starting to get serious in considering music on their devices...and maybe, a Blackberry Music Edition is soon to come,

That would be great to have! I have an older iPod which is handy for the same use, but if I got one of these I could solely use my BB! Then I'd probably get the XM app too!

So sign me up, please!

I've got a cheap knockoff that I love, but it isn't built to last, and the battery life is pitiful.

I'd live a free upgrade. :)

I'm curious how you managed to hook it up to in-car stereo? I have AUX input but no BT support so I would rock such a device in my car!!!

I love using the Pandor app, but it's a pain when I have to disconnect my phone in the middle of a song to use it, or when someone calls me. I would LOVE this little gadget! PLEASE PICK ME!!!! I would love you guys forever (Not that I don't already do!)!

This is a great concept. Perfect for partys and entertaining. Being able to control the playlist and volume remotly is clutch.

Worked great.. but having to buy another charger (I started with a Storm) turned me off and I returned this to Amazon.

Would love to have one... winning would force me to buy another charger, but worth it this time around.

...Never won any thing yet, but this seems like it would be quite fun to have for home, as well as some parties and such.

now this looks sweet! I could totally see this working fantastic by the pool this summer! Thanks for the contest!
