SlingPlayer Mobile WM6

Sling Media today launched a new upgrade to SlingPlayer Mobile that adds support for Windows Mobile 6, letting upgraders and more recent cellphones such as the HTC Mogul stream TV from a Slingbox to their handheld over an Internet connection. Beyond the compatibility boost, the pocket player also gains some functional improvements, the company says: more devices are controllable from phones, while the remote control has also seen a visual refresh. Users of the British version also get a customized language and channel logos.

Pricing for the Windows Mobile 6 edition is set at the same $30 as for other versions; those who have already picked up SlingPlayer for Windows Mobile 5 can upgrade for free by contacting the company for a new registration key. Using SlingPlayer requires that the phone be connected either through 3G cellular Internet (EVDO or HSDPA), Wi-Fi, or USB.
