SlingPlayer Symbian Beta

Sling Media has quietly announced a private beta of SlingPlayer for Symbian, a new version of the mobile TV streaming app. The new version lets any Series 60 phone with either 3G (HSDPA/UMTS) or Wi-Fi watch and control the feed sourced from a Slingbox at home, allowing phones primarily from Nokia to catch video that might otherwise have been missed. The Symbian version should be feature-equivalent with previous versions for Palm and Windows Mobile devices.

Using the beta currently requires a Nokia E65, N75, or the company's range-topping N95; other devices aren't officially supported but should be added over time as Sling gauges the popularity of certain handsets. An uncapped data plan is also necessary to begin the test, which has already launched and ends within four weeks.
