Must-Have BlackBerry Tour Accessories

So you've had your new BlackBerry Tour for a while now (or maybe only a few days!) and hopefully have already stumbled upon our First Five Must-Have Apps for the BlackBerry Tour article. Now that your new BlackBerry is loaded up with useful and fun apps, the next way to enhance your BlackBerry ownership experience is with accessories.

BlackBerry accessories come in many shapes and sizes and serve many different functions to help out get more out of your smartphone. Items like skins, cases and holsters help protect your BlackBerry in style and provide a means of carrying around your BlackBerry that suits the way you want to use it. Bluetooth headsets, speakerphones and stereo headphones allow you to go hands-free while talking or listening to music, while a bluetooth accessory like the BlackBerry Music Gateway allows you to play your BlackBerry's music on your home's stereo system. Extended life batteries help your BlackBerry go longer while a desktop stand or charging pod makes it easy to charge your device and turn it into an awesome bedside clock. And that's just scratching the surface....
