Bluetooth remote control and stereo headsets for Apple iPod
Posted on 7-Jan-2004 07:23 | Tags Filed under: News

We have reported before on other companies planning to release this kind of product, but apparently Ten Technology us the first to introduce one to the market. The company already has a wireless remote control for the Apple iPod, called the naviPod. This time they're showing the naviPlay, one of the first Bluetooth wireless stereo adapter and remote controls for the iPod, at the MacWorld Expo 2004 in San Francisco, CA.

The naviPlay brings Bluetooth wireless CD-Audio quality stereo sound and remote control to the latest docking iPod models:

"iPod users are going to find the naviPlay BT adapter a must-have for the ultimate wireless freedom and remote control," says John Lin, Founder and CEO of Ten Technology.

The naviPlay includes a Bluetooth adapter that attaches to the iPod's dock connector, and a BT headphone adapter that allows use of any stereo headphones or speakers with a standard 3.5mm stereo plug. The headphone adapter also has an LCD display and buttons for basic remote audio functions as well as playlist and menu navigation. Each adapter is powered by rechargeable lithium ion battery that provides approximately 8 hours of airtime. The naviPlay will be available only for 3rd generation iPod models with Dock Connectors and is planned to begin shipping in Q1 2004.

The company plans to introduce additional BT-based products including stereo headphones, stereo speakers, and BT car stereo interfaces in the coming months.
