SlingPlayer Mobile for Blackberry – public beta starts today

Sling Media is rolling out a SlingPlayer Mobile for the following Blackberry models: BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Curve 8900, BlackBerry 8820, BlackBerry Curve 8320, BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220, BlackBerry Pearl 8120.

It’ll probably run on Blackberrys running on EDGE, but it’ll probably suck b/c EDGE networks are just too slow.

Head to the beta site for more info and downloads.

Sling Media prototypes SlingPlayer for iPhone

We’ll start off with the bottom line here and that is this is not a real product, but only a proof of concept. Sling has been toying with a ‘jail broken’ iPhone to prove that the SlingPlayer can run on it. So far, they’ve produced SlingPlayer for other mobiles like Windows Mobile, Symbian-based cells and Palms.

Now that there’s an actual iPhone SDK, hopefully, this can become a reality soon enough. TV on an iPhone or iPod Touch could look pretty sweet.
