iPhone SlingPlayer-The Latest And Greatest Move By Sling Media
If you're a home theater buff we're guessing you're probably a general gadget geek as well. Given that, you're probably frothing at the mouth in anticipation of the expected 3G iPhone announcement by Steve Jobs at the Worldwide Developer's Conference this morning. And while that'll be absolutely amazing should it come true, there's another development happening this week at WWDC. Sling Media, the people that brought you the Slingbox time and placeshifting set top box are working on a SlingPlayer for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It won't be ready to ship anytime this month, but three Sling Media developers will be at WWDC to get a feel for the latest Apple developer tools that'll bring the SlingPlayer closer to release.
It'll eventually be available in two versions-one for the current iPhone using "jailbreak" tools to write the software and another that'll run in a iPhone simulator actually using Apple's proprietary development tools. Although Sling is working on a "jailbreak" version, the iPhone SlingPlayer will only be available at the iPhone app store when it's ready to ship.
We're expecting to hear more about the iPhone SlingPlayer as the week moves ahead.
