Symbian Slingbox Support

After initially releasing its SlingPlayer Mobile software only for Windows Mobile smartphones, Sling Media is now opening the program to users of Symbian-based phones. The program will let owners of Nokia phones such as the pictured N75, most Sony-Ericsson models, and many others running a recent Symbian OS stream live TV from a Slingbox tuner attached to their home theater. The Symbian version will require either 3G wireless Internet or WiFi to connect to the home system but can also control some personal video recorders, allowing the user to both navigate the shows themselves as well as queue them remotely. Although SlingPlayer Mobile launched originally in North America, its developer says Asian and European countries will be the first to receive the Symbian edition before the end of the year, with a version adapted for North American cellphone networks to follow soon afterwards.
