SlingPlayer Mobile May Soon Be Coming to the Palm OS

by Reads (5,927)

For several months now, users of Windows Mobile handhelds and smartphones have been able to watch TV programs streaming over the Internet from their Slingbox. Those with a Palm OS device, though, have been left out in the cold.

There hasn’t yet been an official announcement from Sling Media — the maker of the Slingbox — but there’s strong evidence that this situation is about to change.

Late last week, this company introduced three new Slingbox models with a range of features and prices. As part of this launch, a number of advertising pieces were shipped to stores that were carrying the new devices.

Although Sling Media did its best to cover it up, the tech-oriented web site Zats Not Funny discovered that one of these ads indicates that a Palm OS version of SlingPlayer Mobile is slated for release.

This same ad showed that a Symbian version of this application will be also be launched in the near future.

What’s a Slingbox?

At present, Sling Media’s Slingboxes are able to stream video from A/V equipment at the user’s home to Windows Mobile-based devices, as well as PCs and laptops.

This allows users to watch everything they could on their home TV… but on their handheld or smartphone.
