Editors' note: With the addition of stereo Bluetooth capabilities in Apple's latest iPhone 3.0 operating system (also available for the second-generation iPod Touch), we've revised this review and increased the rating to reflect the product's narrower purpose of bringing Bluetooth to the iPod Nano, iPod Classic, and first-generation iPod Touch.
Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch include tons of desirable features, but they can't stream music over Bluetooth. To address this shortcoming, the folks at Scosche created TuneStream, a $79 stereo A2DP Bluetooth transmitter that plugs directly into the dock port of your iPod or first-generation iPhone.
For better or worse, there's not much to the TuneStream--no buttons, no switches, and no battery to change or charge. What you get is a 1.7-inch tall by 0.7-inch wide rectangle of black plastic, measuring a slim 6.5mm thick, with an iPod dock connection on the top edge and a blue LED set into the front. The TuneStream is as light as a penny, and its plastic construction shows no obvious signs of durability issues.
