First SlingPlayer Mobile hit Windows Mobile devices, and then Palm OS, and just today Symbian. What next? Well, apparently RIM’s BlackBerry OS is the next territory they plan to conquer, according to this straight-forward quote at Pocket-lint.co.uk:
“We are working with BlackBerry to develop a software application at the moment”, Stuart Collingwood, VP of Europe for Sling Media told us.
This confirms what Sling co-founder and CEO said on The GigaOM Show last month. As I reported at the time:
Blake also said that Sling is working on SlingPlayer for Blackberry and the iPhone. Blackberry â€œis even a higher priority because there are more of them out there right nowâ€.
One presumes that this will only be supported on the newer BlackBerry devices which are more multi-media friendly and which have 3G and/or Wi-Fi support for the data connection. Perhaps there will be unofficial support for EDGE devices, as with the Palm OS SPM – which does work acceptably over a solid EDGE connection.
