Anycom Technologies has introduced BluNa, a new Bluetooth adapter designed specifically for the iPod nano. The device transmits music wirelessly from the nano to any Bluetooth receiver, including speakers, headphones, computers or stereo systems. BluNa features automatic device pairing and is compatible with Bluetooth products from Anycom and companies such as Logitech, Motorola or Plantronics. The BluNa adapter can be purchased separately ($120) or in a bundle with the Anycom BIWAS-20 Bluetooth speakers ($350) or Anycom BSH-100 headphones ($230). It will ship later this month.

OOOOHHHHHHHH.  I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now.  The ones out now are bulky and look like ice packs.  I wonder if this is BlueTooth 2.0.  I’d use it to connect to my Alpine system in the truck.  I’m excited….

It isn’t 2.0, Blutooth 1.2. But as already stated, no problem by me considering its size and lack of being the size of the device it is trying to make wireless. I look forward to reviews and release.

$120 for a wireless connection to speakers, headphones, computer? Why not just use FM transmitter(much cheaper)? Why so high priced? I just paid $25 for a cell phone BT adapter and it is duplex!

the anycom website actually says that the bluna is for many different ipods, not just the nano. Apparently there is an extra piece that adapts the unit to fit the ipod nano.

To #6,

Because FM transmitters SUCK.  I never understood why those Griffin iTrips were so popular.  How can anyone settle with “good” audio quality?  Nothing but the best.  Either a direct connection or an equivalent BlueTooth sollution…

Hi Ren,

The slider on the top of the BluNa just snaps off to fit other iPods with dock connectors—no additional hardware required smile

Hey does anybody know if this will work with the logitech wireless headphones for ipod?  I was gonna get those but the transmitter that came with it wasn’t compatible for the nano, so i was just wondering if with this transmitter it would connect to the headphones? smile thanks
