BluePod: Caller ID on Your iPod Screen, Not Much Else

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

Zenocom rolled out BluePod, a dongle that fits the iPod dock connector and suddenly gives you a couple of things every iPod is lacking: Bluetooth capability and FM radio. But don't get too excited just yet. The device stops short of greatness, because all it can do is display a Bluetooth-compatible cellphone's caller ID information on the iPod screen and lower the iPod's volume automatically when a call comes in.

Too bad it can't stream music to Bluetooth speakers or headphones. We're a little suspicious when we look at this picture of the product attached to an ancient iPod mini. No word on pricing or availability, but this better be cheap.


iPod's friend, 'BluePod'? []
