Blackberry 8800 media player audio output
      #29296 - 12/27/07 02:29 PM

The Blackberry 8800 media player audio output seems to only go to the onboard speaker. Does anyone know how to route it to the headphone output? Is there an upgrade?

It should automatically play through the included BB stereo headset.

Unfortunately the BlackBerry 8800 doesn't support the A2DP stereo Bluetooth headset profile so that won't work. We mentioned that as a con in our review. The BlackBerry Curve supports A2DP but not the 8800 .

Thanks - Do you know if this is a hardware issue or a (upgradeable?) software issue?

Not sure if the hardware is capable of A2DP. But RIM hasn't indicated any intent to add it to the 8800.
