Blupod lets iPod users carry cellphones

Blupod iPod Adapter

While cellphones and iPods may merge in the future, the two devices are rarely compatible separately. Listening to an iPod frequently involves ignoring caller ID on incoming calls in the hurry to pause the iPod or missing those calls altogether. Zenecom's recently announced Blupod is designed to alleviate these issues and also provide extra features. Attaching to the iPod through the Dock Connector, the Blupod pairs with a cellphone via Bluetooth to notify the user about incoming calls. When the phone receives a call, Zenekom's adapter displays the caller ID on the iPod screen and automatically lowers the iPod's volume to let the owner answer (or decline) any call they choose. The Blupod also serves much the same role as Apple's Radio Remote, offering basic song controls and FM radio reception. No launch details were mentioned during the unveiling in Berlin, but European and North American releases are pending.
