Gear4 BluEye gives iPods cell integration, FM, remote

Gear4 BluEye iPod Remote

Bluetooth adapters for iPods are nearly ubiquitous, but the British firm Gear4 believes its latest iPod accessory has features that set it apart from other models. The just announced BluEye attaches to the dock connector found on most iPods and synchronizes key calling features of Bluetooth-equipped cellphones with Apple's music player. Common features such as pausing music during calls and displaying caller ID through the iPod are supported, but the BluEye adds the ability to dial the most recent number through the iPod itself -- a feature useful to owners who miss an important call while the BluEye is connected.

Gear4's device also serves as an alternative to Apple's Radio Remote, containing both an FM tuner with 15 presets as well as basic music controls for pausing and skipping tracks. The company anticipates shipping the BluEye in early November for 50 ($93 US).
