Right in time for the final rounds of the FIFA World Cup 2010, Sling Media announced today the availability of its SlingPlayer Mobile for Android Smartphones. The all new application gives Android phone users easy access to their home TV experience anywhere they have mobile phone or WiFi internet access. Now anyone with an Android phone never has to miss a favorite TV show when they're away from home. When in your mobile phone provider's area of 3G, 4G or WiFi coverage and connected to a Slingbox SOLO, PRO or PRO-HD, SlingPlayer Mobile makes it simple to watch and control your living room television at any time from any location.

SlingPlayer Mobile for Android features faster startup and control response times, and it works among a variety of Android-based mobile phones in the market today. It also has a new user interface that gives quick-touch access to the most critical remote controls and recently viewed channels.

From our recent testing we can confirm that the SlingPlayer Mobile for Android worked well on Android 1.6 (like a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10) - Android 2.1 (like a HTC Desire or Samsung Galaxy S) devices, supporting HVGA (like used for the HTC Legend) up to WVGA (like used for a Motorola Milestone). Furthermore, even if not officially supported, the old Slingbox Classic, which has to be connected to a Sling.com account works also well.

SlingPlayer Mobile Android is available now for download for US$ 29.99 in the Android Market in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom and the United States.

Cheers ~ Arne
