U.K.-Toronto-based Financial Post reports that BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion is planning an accessory known as the BlackBerry Remote Stereo Gateway.
The device is said to connect to a stereo while, at the same time, Bluetooth technology is employed to play music files from a multimedia-capable BlackBerry.
The relevant section of the User Manual, as newly posted on the FCC Web site, tells us that:
The BlackBerry Remote Stereo Gateway is designed to enable wireless transmission of music or other audio files from your BlackBerry device to your home or portable stereo.
The BlackBerry Remote Stereo Gateway uses Bluetooth technology to establish a wireless connection with your BlackBerry device. After you pair the BlackBerry Remote Stereo Gateway with your BlackBerry device, you can connect to the BlackBerry Remote Stereo Gateway when the device is within range of your BlackBerry device (a typical range is approximately 10 meters).
BlackBerry Curve would be one of those devices.
"This is huge," the Financial Post's David George Cosh quoted Carmi Levy, senior vice-president of strategic consulting for AR Communications Inc., as saying. "This really is the first tangible evidence that has been bubbling under for some time, but RIM has been really quiet about bringing that to fruition."
Pictures? There are four on the FCC site. Come along and I will show them all to you.
