Confirmed: SlingPlayer for iPhone coming soon

Sling Media's SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone will arrive this evening at Apple's iTunes App Store

Sling Media's SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone will arrive this evening at Apple's iTunes App Store, according to company spokesperson Cathy Cook.

The $29.99 SlingPlayer, which will work on the iPhone and iPod Touch, will stream via Wi-Fi connections only, not over the AT&T data network, which has had its problems managing bandwidth-hogging iPhone users.

SlingPlayer Mobile lets you watch and control your home TV and DVR via a mobile phone, provided you own a "place-shifting" Slingbox Tuner.

An iPhone version of SlingPlayer Mobile has been anticipated for some time, particularly since the app already runs on competing smart phones, including BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm and Symbian devices.

Stay tuned for PC World's complete review of SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone, which is coming soon.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
