PLACE-SHIFT: Sling Media to introduce the Slingbox PRO-HD later this year

Not that I'm aware of a single Windows Mobile smartphone which can playback high-definition 1080i videos (I mean Windows Mobile users are already happy to get VGA) but that's just too cool not to talk about it. Sling Media is going to add another Slingbox to its current line of "place-shifters", the Slingbox PRO-HD, a follower to the earlier released Slingbox PRO, which will, like the Slingbox PRO, includes multiple inputs and outputs, including digital audio and a digital (ATSC/QAM) tuner (so expect a North American release only).
Not only will the Slingbox PRO-HD stream up to 1080i content and 5.1 surround within the home to a computer, it can also be used to ship high-def material to another HDTV via Sling Media's forthcoming SlingCatcher.

In addition, the lucky ones with super highspeed broadband connectivity, such as FiOS, will get similar HD quality streaming to remote locations. The Slingbox PRO-HD is slated for a Q3 release for around US $399.99.

Cheers ~ Arne

Sweet!!! Was about upgrading from my Classic to a Pro but now I will wait for the Pro HD! What I like is the idea to share HD content with other TV through the Slingcatcher. Any word when this will be available?
Now Microsoft, please give us 1080i Windows Mobile phones too! ;-)
