During the CES, Dave Zatz from Zatz Not Funny just had the chance to talk with John Gilmore, Sling Media' General Manager, who unveiled an upcoming Adobe Flash-based SlingPlayer being demo'ed in their booth. This means that you'll be able to turn your Sony PS3 into a SlingCatcher and additional mobiles should be more quickly supported. At the end of the day, it could mean that smartphones like Windows Mobile, Android and webOS will soon be able to be used as a SlingCatcher. According to Gilmore, the Flash player will hit the market first half of 2010 with initial support for the Slingbox Pro-HD and with the Slingbox Solo to follow-up.

Furthermore Dave Zatz had an opportunity to briefly chat with Sling's mobile product manager who announced that a SlingPlayer Mobile client for Android is definitely coming; although Sling Media isn't prepared to discuss timings today. Unfortunately, Palm's webOS is currently being "evaluated", meaning a potential launch is much further away. However, here Palm Pre and Pixi users might get a chance using Flash instead since Flash will be definitely supported on webOS smartphones.

Cheers ~ Arne
