Sling shows off SlingPlayer mobile for iPhone


Sling hasn’t officially been accepted by Apple into their iPhone developer program, but that hasn’t stopped them from showing off a version of their SlingMobile running on an iPhone.

Still in very early pre-alpha proof-of-concept stages, the app was show running on a jailbroken iPhone

Ted Malone, Vice President of Product Marketing & Product Management for Sling told Macworld that Sling is creating a version of the SlingPlayer Mobile for both jailbroken iPhone’s as well as a version that will be available via the App Store once Apple approves things.

The current version only works with Wi-Fi but it should work “acceptably well” over a 3G connection (sorry, EDGE won’t cut it).

If you’re going to be in San Francisco on Monday you can check out an in person demo at the Starbucks at 120 4th Street across from the Metreon.

Yes, seriously, at the Starbucks.

There’s also a video of it in action over at Engadget.
