TuneStage for iPod nano
Belkin today announced the TuneStage for iPod nano, a device that allows you to play the music from your iPod nano through your home stereo wirelessly via Bluetooth technology. With a transmitter connected to your iPod nano and a receiver wired to a home stereo system, TuneStage offers reliable, high-quality sound without the clutter of cables. Wirelessly connected through TuneStage, your iPod nano becomes the ultimate remote, offering full control of any music collection. The device uses Bluetooth v1.2 technology to transmit from up to 33 feet away to a home stereo--through a home entertainment cabinet or even from another room. The receiver connects via RCA or 3.5mm outputs to any auxillary input on a home stereo system. The transmitter unit draws power directly from the iPod nano, while a mini-USB port under the transmitter offers an added convenience of charging the Nano while in use. It will be available in North America in July for $180 with launches in Asia, Europe, and Australia to follow.
