Amp’d Preloads Slingbox, Orb

Amp’d will start selling Motorola’s Q smartphone next month, but the interesting part is that the handset comes with Sling Media’s SlingPlayer Mobile and Orb Network’s software pre-installed — the first time in the US, according to RCR News. SlingPlayer Mobile is a place-shifting service that lets users watch TV on the handset, while Orb’s place-shifting software covers cable TV and digital music…it’s just like Amp’d to include both.
