Its truly a holiday miracle! I got word from one of our tipsters that Sling sent them an email inviting them to the SlingBox for BlackBerry Beta. We have mentioned Sling for BlackBerry a few times around the site but it has been awhile (October) since we have seen any signs of life for the application. I thought it was dead which was sad since I saw a working copy at CES almost a year ago!
So it looks like Sling has started sending out Beta invites for the Sling client for BlackBerry. Let us know in the comments if you got one. If you have some screenshots send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org!
