    "We loved the original Pacemaker, and were sad to hear of its eventual discontinuation. News just in this morning, however, is that the DJ tool is back as a PlayBook app thanks to an exclusive collaboration with the tablet's maker. Details are sparse right now, as the information spilled at RIM's event this morning at MWC, but we do know that there will be auto beatmatching, vinyl mode with scratching, digital mode, looping, loop travel, pitch control, beat skip and "pro level" effects. All we have in terms of availability is that it will be out this spring, with no word on price. In the meantime we're going to start prepping up that music collection."

    It looks like there's a hardware component that goes with it (for mixing/scratching?)

    It certainly ties in with the latest "Be Bold" ads with the Martinez Brothers.

    The original pacemaker was an interesting concept but the price was too high for the original hardware, having anything remotely related will be amazing. I can't wait to download the app for my playbook and more importantly any future bb10 phone that will bring the portability of the original pacemaker.

    I think the hardware component is the original pacemaker, and won't be needed for this. I think it's just in the image because it is the original product from that company.

    You could always get a headphone splitter if it matters that much to you. They are very cheap.
