Latest Accessory Reviews
Earlier this month, RIM released the BlackBerry Music Gateway. This device was based on the previous BlackBerry Stereo Music Gateway but it was a total, ground-up, redesign. The original Gateway was clunky and pairing required a few steps. Both of these issues had been remedied with the all-new BlackBerry Music Gateway. We unboxed this device a few weeks back, and I had nothing but good things to say about it in my initial impressions video. I have now spent some in-depth time with the Gateway and my full review of this great, new device can be seen past the break.
Today we are unboxing and taking a first look at Jawbone’s latest entry into the Bluetooth headset market, the Jawbone ERA. The ERA is one of the most advanced Bluetooth’s on the market, featuring technology like Noise Assassin 3.0 and Motion-X technology. It’s light and has great looks. The product is packaged in one of the most innovative boxes I have ever opened. The ERA is located at the top and then in the bottom you have all the accessories neatly laid out in a flip-top box.
Check out the video above to get the full experience of unboxing the JawBone ERA and check back sometime in the next two weeks for a full review of this revolutionary headset. If you’re already convinced that the ERA is the headset for you, hit the link below to grab one for just $129.99.

I just got my hands on the completely redesigned BlackBerry Music Gateway that RIM released last week and I am pretty excited about this accessory. I’ve only just unboxed it and had a few minutes to play with the gateway, but I’m very impressed. RIM includes everything you’ll need right in the box and setting it up is a snap. You just plug in the power cord and then plug the gateway into your TV, sound system, speakers, etc. and you’re ready to go. The NFC tap-to-connect is a flawless new feature and NFC-enabled BlackBerry owners are going to love this. Take a look at the video above to see the BlackBerry Music Gateway and watch TheBerryFix early next week for my full review of this device.

Hey everyone! Justin here with my first accessory review for the BlackBerry PlayBook. I just got a few new cases for the PlayBook a few weeks back and I have been trying them out for review. Today I’m bringing my first PlayBook case review, the BlackBerry PlayBook Leather Sleeve. The leather sleeve for PlayBook is much like the leather pockets for BlackBerry Smartphones. The PlayBook slides in for protection while in transit or storage and must be removed for use. You can watch the video above to see the leather sleeve in action and then head on past the break for a more detailed review of the BlackBerry PlayBook Leather Sleeve.
I have never been a big fan of Bluetooth speakerphones because I rarely find that they are loud enough to accommodate the road noise in my 1999 Chevy Cavalier, so I was admittedly skeptical going into this review. My preconceptions were pleasantly proved mistaken with this new product from Jabra though. The Jabra Freeway proved more than loud enough to have a clear and continuous conversation (sufficiently tested with an hour long conversation on my weekly drive to pick up my daughter for the weekend)
Retailing at $126.43 on Amazon.com, the Jabra Freeway is jam packed with features. Not only is this Bluetooth device an excellent companion for driving but it also doubles as a great music accessory for your BlackBerry Smartphone as well. Since it supports the A2DP Bluetooth profile for streaming music it is awesome for any time you might want to listen to the music you have stored on your device (I used it to play music in the yard while throwing the football with my daughter). You can also use this audio streaming feature to get clear voice instructions from any turn by turn gps service you might have installed on your BlackBerry.
- Rich and crisp sound with 3 speakers and Virtual Surround sound
- Use your voice to make and take calls completely hands-free
- Announces the name of the incoming caller
- Voice Guidance gives spoken battery level, paring instructions and connection status
- Multiuse – Connects to 2 Bluetooth® devices at the same time
- A2DP streaming for playback of music, podcasts and directions from GPS applications
- Up to 14 hours talk time and up to 40 days standby time
Jabra has been on the forefront of Bluetooth headset technology for years creating some on the best headsets around and the Wave is no exception. The all new Jabra Wave is probably the most comfortable Bluetooth headset that I’ve worn in years and the quality doesn’t stop there it’s carried out throughout the whole device. Hit up the break and follow me as I dissect the Jabra Wave.
The search continues on TheBerryFix.com for the best Bluetooth headset, with more and more headsets making their way onto the market which one will be the best? We’re trying to answer that question and today I am going to take a look at the all new BlackBerry HS-300, which is the little brother to the HS-700. To get the full review of the latest headset from RIM hit up the break.
The team over at Jabra sent us both the Jabra Cruiser and Jabra Stone Bluetooth devices for BlackBerry. We previously reviewed the Jabra Cruiser and last week we featured the unboxing of the Jabra Stone.

The Jabra Cruiser in-car Bluetooth speakerphone was sent to us by the team at Jabra for review. I have been using this device for the past few weeks and I have been very impressed with its feature set and quality. The setup and use of this device are very simple and the long cord on the in-car charger is very helpful in keeping the Cruiser fully charged and ready to use. The voice that announces events on the Cruiser is a calm and soothing female voice. The Cruiser is available at most major electronics retailers for an MSRP of $99.99. The full review with additional photos of the Jabra Cruiser in-car Bluetooth Speakerphone is featured afte the break.
