BlackBerry users could soon have another gadget to get addicted to. Rumors of the Remote Stereo Gateway have been floating for a while, but the Boy Genius Report says that the unit has been seen for a relatively cheap $80.
However, Tessco’s site doesn’t make ordering the add-on very easy. It’s hard to tell if the unit is actually available now, if it’s just for pre-order, or what. RIM isn’t helping matters, since they haven’t officially announced the product yet.
One thing we do know: what the device does. This Bluetooth transmitter takes all of the audio on your mobile phone and streams it to your home stereo. Flip a switch and the unit can also transfer music to a Bluetooth headset.
It sounds kind of neat—and at the very least, they don’t seem to be greedy by making it only work with RIM phones; everyone’s money is good here.
Aside from phones, the Gateway can also stream sound from your computer.
