Confirmed: SlingPlayer for iPhone coming soon

Sling Media's SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone will arrive this evening at Apple's iTunes App Store

Sling Media's SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone will arrive this evening at Apple's iTunes App Store, according to company spokesperson Cathy Cook.

The $29.99 SlingPlayer, which will work on the iPhone and iPod Touch, will stream via Wi-Fi connections only, not over the AT&T data network, which has had its problems managing bandwidth-hogging iPhone users.

SlingPlayer Mobile lets you watch and control your home TV and DVR via a mobile phone, provided you own a "place-shifting" Slingbox Tuner.

An iPhone version of SlingPlayer Mobile has been anticipated for some time, particularly since the app already runs on competing smart phones, including BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm and Symbian devices.

Stay tuned for PC World's complete review of SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone, which is coming soon.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
