Nano-friendly Bluetooth stereo adaptor in pipeline

iPod powered

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

German Bluetooth accessory specialist AnyCom is preparing a wireless stereo audio adaptor for Apple's iPod Nano. The slimline add-on draws its power from the player to beam out songs using the Bluetooth 1.2's Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP).

The unit - dubbed the BluNa - plugs onto the bottom of the Nano, connecting to the player's Dock port. The adaptor also supports the Bluetooth Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP), so you can use any compatible headphones to control the player directly.

AnyCom claims the 10g unit has a 10m range. It admits use of the BluNa reduces the iPod's single-charge playback time by two and a half hours, so you should still get over 11 hours' usage out of it. AnyCom said it will bundle an AC adaptor with the BluNa, allowing the player to be recharged while it's connected to the Bluetooth device.

There's no world yet on pricing or availability - the AnyCom website simply says the BluNa is coming "soon". It'll be available in black and white versions. ®
