Leaked Slides Show New Music Gateway and Keyboard Accessories

After writing up about the leaked prices found in the slides from Fommy something struck me as odd while eating breakfast. I totally skipped over two accessories that are actually worth noting. First of all is the new BlackBerry Music Gateway that streams music from your PlayBook to any audio system. RIM released something similar awhile back but this new device has a whole new design and is scheduled for July of this year. It is also prices much lower with a MSRP of $49 instead of the previous devices MSRP of about $79. The device doesn’t specifically say if it streams music over Bluetooth but that is how the old Music Gateway worked. I am hoping for a Media gateway that would also stream video and pictures over Wi-Fi… :)

The other accessory on the leaked slides that is worth noting is the BlackBerry Mini Bluetooth Keyboard. It uses the same rapid charging 24Watt charging speed as the PlayBook and claims to be lightweight. I am wondering how the keyboard will work since it has a hand rest and all. It seems like you will probably need this bookbinder case to use as a stand but it does not seem to have a carrying place for the keyboard…

So what do you think about these accessories? I am kind of digging the slick bookbinder though the neoprene cases are also slick. How about you?

  2. very nice to see a full like of accessories!

  3. The accessories look great.

  4. Looks great. i just hope they don’t charge an arm and a leg for most accessories.

  5. I am most interested in the keyboard. I wish it did have a stand for the PB though.

    What would be really cool is if they made a keyboard with a big enough battery that it could also feed the PB in a cradle.

  6. all these are refresh of older accessories under the PlayBook cloud!! but im still loving the PlayBook immensely
