LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Cignias today released its free BlackBerry smartphone app, MusicNAO, and announced the general availability of the NAO Symphony and NAO Symphony Noir. The NAO Music Systems offer music lovers a powerful, high-quality music solution that transforms a BlackBerry smartphone into a wireless home entertainment device.

The NAO Music Systems provide BlackBerry smartphone users with multiple ways to enjoy their digital music library on a larger scale anywhere within their home. With the MusicNAO app, BlackBerry smartphones can wirelessly stream music from the device or control an iPod docked in the music system in their home network, while still using BlackBerry smartphone features including making phone calls or sending email with negligible impact to the BlackBerry battery. Any stereo Bluetooth-enabled device can stream music to a NAO Music Station while in Bluetooth mode.

"As music lovers we were frustrated that no product existed to let us stream music over Wi-Fi from our BlackBerry smartphones to high-quality speakers," said Shawn Saleem, CEO of Cignias. "We designed the NAO Music System from the ground up to enable smartphone owners to wirelessly listen to their favorite music anywhere within their home with no hassle and incredible smartphone battery conservation."

The NAO Symphony automatically downloads firmware updates as well as new features as they become available, providing users with a future-proof sound system. As Cignias continues to add features to the NAO Symphony, the system will update itself and supply users with the latest technology.
