Lenntek HookUp iPod Remote

Lenntek has unveiled the HookUp, a tandem Bluetooth receiver and remote that the company believes will more effectively bridge the audio of cellphones and iPods. The receiver connects to the Dock Connector on fifth-generation iPods and uses an intermediary remote to handle basic audio controls on both the iPod and a Bluetooth-equipped cellphone. As with similar remotes, the HookUp automatically pauses music when it detects an incoming call and resumes when the call ends. This lets owners safely pocket both devices until more advanced functions are necessary, according to Lenntek. The company ships its Bluetooth adapter today from Amazon for $130.
