Sling Media has finally confirmed that they will be releasing SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry later this year. They have also announced that they will be unveiling their software running on a BlackBerry Pearl 8120 during CES next week.
Wondering why this is such a big deal? Just like Slingmedia from your laptop, with the SlingPlayer Mobile software, you'll be able to watch your home TV on a number of mobile phone platforms including Windows Mobile, Palm OS, and Symbian OS. And it won't require a monthly fee or other recurring charges, you'll just need to purchase a SlingPlayer Mobile for a one-time charge of $29.99. How great is that?!
