Pioneer and iPod Bluetooth

Though few other details have been mentioned, a Pioneer representative claims that Apple will release a Bluetooth adapter for the iPod, according to a story in CarsGuide. The stereo manufacturer's new DEH head unit, which includes a Bluetooth transmitter, is reported in the article as not only connecting to cellphones for hands-free calling but also as supporting audio streaming from iPods. Apple will in turn release a Bluetooth adapter of its own to make this possible, says Pioneer's Michael Broadhurst. While the source is apparently legitimate, it should be noted that such pre-announcements have been historically inaccurate. In February 2005, a Motorola project manager incorrectly told Radio France about a Bluetooth-enabled iPod that never materialized.
