As always I enjoy trying out new products that come available and the most recent to try out was the BlackBerry Music Gateway.
To start things off, I really enjoyed the packaging and the little things that are included with it. Many times you get an accessory and find out that you need a certain cable or something that’s not included. Not the case with the BlackBerry Music Gateway. Inside you will get the Music Gateway, 3.5mm auxiliary cable, RCA Cable and power Cable. Music quality is great and I have had no troubles with this device and have been using it for around a month. I use it with my BlackBerry device more so than my BlackBerry PlayBook, but both devices work great with the Music Gateway.
The idea here is simple, play your music, podcasts, Internet radio, or other audio content on your device and enjoy it using a set of non-Bluetooth speakers. I have it connected in my office and really enjoy the quick and easy access it has to offer.
