Not really a Slingbox replacement, Samsung's newly launched "Smart View" application is an interesting alternative to place-shift media in a home environment. It enables users to view content from a Samsung Smart TV or other input devices right on the Samsung Galaxy S II, via WLAN - whether consumers are enjoying cable broadcast programs or content from a Blu-ray player, camcorder, set-top box or other input device. In addition, users can browse any currently installed Smart TV applications from their mobile devices, bringing even more functionality and convenience to the Samsung apps experience.

The Smart View app for mobile devices enables mobile viewing from around the home. With only one Smart TV, a family member can watch one TV program in the living room, while another family member enjoys either the same content - or movies played by the living room Blu-ray player - from the comfort of the bedroom while leaning back with the Galaxy S II.

The Samsung Smart View is now available free of charge from the Android Market. It requires a Samsung Smart TV D7000, D8000 or D9500 series TV as well as it currently supports the Samsung Galaxy S II only. However, it will be also available for the Galaxy Player (YP-GB70) in July, along with the Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab later this year.

This is great. Also a perfect sticky-app to Samsung. People with a Samsung TV in the livingroom will think twice to buy an iPhone when they get great features like this on the S2 and on the Galaxy S3 that will arive in 2012. Will Apple soon also go to produce TV's, or perhaps work together with a brand to implement the AppleTV in TV-sets?
