Sling demos iPhone proof of concept for remote media streaming

Slingplayer_iphoneWhat would the night before XMAS WWDC be without a broken embargo, right? We were holding on to this news until midnight tonight but the cat’s out of the bag early… and somewhat expected anyway. Tomorrow at the Apple WWDC, Sling Media will be showing off a SlingPlayer mobile client for the iPhone. It’s solely a proof of concept (read: you can’t have it) that currently works on jailbroken phones, probably because the final iPhone SDK isn’t out the door just. Of course, that’s likely to change in less than 24 hours, so hopefully, the new iPhone client will move to reality pretty darn quick: remote television streams in 480 x 320 are sound pretty good to me. Or will the new iPhone have an even higher res? We’ll find out soon enough, but first I have to put some milk and cookies out for Stevie Claus… g’night! [Shoot! And I was thinking of bypassing this new iPhone version thinking I didn’t need 3G. Sling just threw that idea out the window. Scrooges! ;)]
