At that time we were not told exactly when the device would be released, we did now the cost was $49.99. We are happy to inform you today that RIM has released BlackBerry Music Gateway! Hit the break for more!
The new BlackBerry® Music Gateway features include:
- Simple Connectivity – Using NFC, simply tap your NFC enabled BlackBerry to connect to the BlackBerry Music Gateway, or connect via standard Bluetooth pairing.
