In a piece carried on an Australian car website, a Pioneer spokesbot let slip that Apple will soon be releasing a Bluetooth adapter for iPods which’ll allow them to wirelessly communicate with Pioneer’s new DEH car stereo head units. The Bluetooth-equipped car system is already capable of talking to Bluetooth mobile phones, allowing you to make and receive calls through the car’s head and speakers. The basic Pioneer DEH model (DEH-P7850BT) will set you back 800 shekels. The more power, color-screened DEH-9850BT costs $1,000.
One would assume that the iPod adapter will also work with other Bluetooth wireless audio devices, such as headphones, speakers, and the like. No word on when the adapter will be released, but when do we ever know about the release of Apple products beforehand?
