While at BlackBerry World 2012 we got an introduction to the BlackBerry Music Gateway and it is nice to see that is currently available. I received my BlackBerry Music Gateway from RIM last night and look forward to using it. One thing I really like so far is the NFC and the small compact size of the device. I will do a post here in a few days on how well it works but for now you can check out this nice demo video from the YouTube BlackBerry Channel that does a nice walk through of the BlackBerry Music Gateway.
Experience your music, your way.
Wirelessly play the music on your BlackBerry® smartphone, BlackBerry® Playbook™ tablet, or computer through your home stereo or car stereo using the BlackBerry® Music Gateway.

It’s really that simple. You’ve got full control over playback, change tracks, volume, and play or pause because your BlackBerry device is your remote control.
