RIM has unveiled a new version of its BlackBerry Music Gateway peripheral that lets users stream music from their BlackBerry handset to an external audio system. The new version still uses Bluetooth technology to handle the media streaming, but it allows owners of NFC-equipped BlackBerry smartphones to just tap their device on the Music Gateway to initiate pairing. The NFC pairing features are similar to what Nokia offers in a number of its Bluetooth accessories. The new version of the BlackBerry Music Gateway is due to arrive in June and will cost $49.99.source: RIM, via: CrackBerry
