Accessories and Applications for the Music Lover
So you have a fellow BlackBerry addict on your list, and they also love music. Or perhaps, you happen to be that particular music enthusiast, and just need to drop some not so subtle hints to your friends and family on what to get you? We're here to help, with 5 top gift ideas for the music lover this holiday season.
What good is your music if you can't bring it with you? A 16GB SanDisk SDHC will hold hours of tunes, keeping them rocking while on the go. Any Berry running 4.6+ OS will handle this baby easily, and most users will have a hard time maxing it out with its average 3500 song capacity. If your OS 4.5 don't worry, our store has many SD cards to suit your needs.

Stylish and discreet, this high-quality headset will help put you to the top of someone's thank you card list this holiday.
