SlingPlayer Public Beta Coming Dec 30th!!!

blackberry_bold Sling Media put up a landing page today for their upcoming SlingPlayer for BlackBerry client. We mentioned this earlier in the week. 🙂 They plan on releasing a public beta come December 30th. I guess it will give you something to do over new years break.

  1. Right. You’d think though that with over a year of development they would have better device support at launch. All the EVDO devices are left behind (yeah, that means YOU Storm folks!!).
