We've been receiving emails and tweets almost daily from CrackBerry readers asking us when we'll be selling the newly-released BlackBerry Music Gateway. I'm happy to say the answer to this one is NOW. It's in stock and shipping worldwide. If you missed our announcement on our new international shipping destinations and rates, be sure to check that out - we've really upped our game.

If you're not familiar with the BlackBerry Music Gateway, it's an 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. It'll even work with non-BlackBerry phones. 

The BlackBerry Music Gateway sells for $49.95. We have a full review coming soon, but in the meantime you can jump back to our BlackBerry World hands-on video walkthrough and hit the store link below to order now.

I have an original and use it occasionally. Pretty handy when I do need it. I just wish this reboot wirelessly streamed video from your phone and/or playbook as well.

I bought mine first round in early June. This thing is off the chain. 1 for the car and 1 for my A/V receiver.

I stumbled upon this device by mistake by visiting RIM's website, but have otherwise never seen it marketed anywhere.

Am I just missing it or is RIM just going with the word-of-mouth approach?

When I click through to purchase it, it says that it isn't compatible with the Playbook device. Is this just an error on your guys part?

I have the new device and a Playbook; the Playbook most definitely works with it. I use it all the time.

The Playbook before OS 2.0 did not support A2DP, so wasn't supported.

Purchased from http://ca.CrackBerry.com on a Thursday and received on a Tuesday, super quick compared to other online stores.

I installed it in car without Bluetooth and it connects within 3 seconds of the car turning on. My other car with a BT Headunit takes 10 seconds or longer to connect.

I put a Buy recommendation on this.

Love mine. Only had it for about 3 weeks but I use it daily. It's great in the car and I leave it on most of the day connected to my PlayBook streaming Pandora to my home stereo system. Fantastic little device.

Hate to ask dumb questions but my car radio does not have any connectors such as RCA or USB etc. as some of the new radios do. How would I be able to use this device with a regular setup like this?

I would love for this product to work because I'm trying to learn a foreign language from MP3's that I have stored on my blackberry. This would be perfect when I'm driving.

Thanks!

It connects via bluetooth to the car and blackberry.
