Job post suggests SlingPlayer for Android, webOS

updated 03:35 pm EDT, Thu October 1, 2009

SlingPlayer coming to Palm Pre, as per job post?

A job listing at Sling Media, the maker of the Slingbox streaming TV hub, suggests that both Android and webOS versions of the streaming TV application are in develpoment. The job calls for a Senior Mobile User Interface Designer knowledgeable in these platforms as well as in platforms that already have SlingPlayer apps, such as BlackBerry, iPhone, Symbian and Windows Mobile.

Sling hasn't officially revealed plans for these platforms but is expected to face less resistance as both Android and webOS have typically had less restrictions on how officially-approved apps can use a 3G connection while the iPhone version has been blocked from using anything but Wi-Fi. They also don't require that all apps be downloaded through a particular store. [via PreCentral]
