2010 Toyota Prius Bluetooth Audio test with a Blackberry Curve 8900, shot during the Prius Connection LA Event on March 1, 2009.
Once the phone was paired, I was able to play, pause, and choose next/previous songs. This version did not show the name of the song being played, and we're unsure if the production version would perform any differently. Both the Stereo Headphone and Audio/Video control profiles were used to accomplish this.
The screen at times did switch back to the setup screen vs. the audio screen at one point, but perhaps due to where we started the test. Audio performance was acceptable, but we were unable to compare to a CD or direct cable to see if it was identical or "worse". Day to day, I'd find this a usable means of listening to music.
Funny thing is, I purposely didn't unpair the phone in the end (left my mark, so to speak). Later on, I was walking around the event, and someone turned on the radio in the car. My phone suddenly started playing music in the holster at a distance. This was likely probably because the stereo headphone profile wasn't functional at 25 ft, but the A/V control profile was.

Sunnyvale in Sunnyvale, CA, USA.
It uses a planetary gear to divert power. Power can come from the internal
combustion engine (ICE = blue handle) or the Motor Generator 1 (MG1 =
yellow disc) and Motor Generator 2 (orangle handle). MG2 drives the wheels
directly (represented by cranking the orange handle before the reduction
gears) or the momentum of the car pushes the wheel to spin MG2 to recapture
energy during braking (represented by cranking the black handle after the
reduction gears). MG1 (yellow disc) can spin the planetary gear (green)
while the wheels (black) and MG2 (orange) are stationary, which in turn
spin the ICE (blue) before gasoline is injected to the ICE. That
pre-spinning of the ICE to operating RPM allows the ICE to be started and
shut off at will with reduced air pollution concern (represented by
cranking the blue handle, it should only turn in one direction, the model
is flawed). MG1 (yellow) can spin backward or forward to redirect power to
the wheels (this model does not have a crank handle for the yellow disc, a
model flaw again because MG1 must be spun actively to control the output of
