Belkin TuneStage II near?
Belkin has reportedly canceled its plans to bring its TunesStage for the iPod nano to market, but has plans to offer a second-generation product for iPod nano users next month. TuneStage allows users to stream music from their iPod to a stereo system using a Bluetooth transmitter connected to the iPod paired with a receiver connected to any sound system. Early last month, the company announced its new TuneStage for iPod nano; however, plans to ship the device were delayed and now several reports have surfaced that indicate that it has been cancelled entirely. BlueTomorrow.com reports receiving a message confirming the rumors that the TuneStage for iPod nano has indeed been canceled, but that the company is working a new second-generation product: "We will, however, be coming out with a TuneStage II that will be compatible with the Nano and iPod with video. That's due out in late September." The company has posted little information on TuneStage since its initial announcement, has not posted a ship date, and is not taking pre-orders, but the it remains listed on the company website.
