LAS VEGAS — Those who have downloaded songs onto their phones now have a way to listen to them on their stereos using wireless technology.
At the International Consumer Electronics Show this week, Sony Ericsson unveiled a wireless adapter that can plug into the back of a stereo system and play songs off any Bluetooth-enabled phone.
"Say you're going to a party and for some reason they don't have music," spokesman Drew Crowell said. "You bring this. You plug it into the back of their stereo. ... It's really quick and easy and you just then control the music that is playing."
Normal phone functions allow the user to control volume, pause and skip tracks.
Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications AB, a joint venture of Sweden's LM Ericsson and Japan's Sony Corp., says the product should be available in the United States by March for $79.
