Kicking off the BlackBerry World 2012 announcements a little early, RIM went ahead introduced the new BlackBerry Music Gateway to the masses. In case you've never read our original review of the device, the BlackBerry Music Gateway is a A2DP Bluetooth music streaming device that serves as an in-between for your BlackBerry and any audio equipment you may have such as a home theater system or your car, enabling the capability to stream music from your BlackBerry. RIM did however, make some small feature changes to the BlackBerry Music Gateway that separate it from the original:
As noted, the updated version also brings NFC to the mix for supported devices allowing you to simply just tap your device on the gateway to pair them up and then you're ready to stream your music. The price-point has been lowered as well with the original having cost $99.99, the new one will be reasonably priced at $49.99 when it hits shelves in June.
