Not yet available, Sling Media announced the upcoming release of its SlingPlayer 2.0 for PC which will includes last year's announced Clip+Sling functionality, allowing Slingbox customers to "grab" clips of their favorite television moments and instantly share them online. Additionally, SlingPlayer 2.0 incorporates an electronic program guide that displays a customer's television channel lineup and programming. Last, but not least, SlingPlayer 2.0 incorporates a 60 minute video buffer that allows local pause, rewind, and fast forward transport controls.

It's not yet known which of the SlingPlayer 2.0 features will make it to the SlingPlayer Mobile player (for Windows Mobile, Symbian, Palm an/or BlackBerry) but the 60 minutes video buffer would be quite cool (even if I think you will need at least 8 GB of free memory), as well as the EPG and the Clip+Sling functionality or to make it sort: all of them.

SlingPlayer 2.0 will be released in Q1 2008 and as with all SlingPlayers for PC, also this update will be available at at no cost to Slingbox owners.

Cheers ~ Arne
