Sling hints new Slingbox, possible remote

Sling in an invitation today alluded to a expanding strategy for its media hubs to be shown at CES. Besides likely new Slingbox devices, the company says it will have a "next-generation touch screen device" at the trade show. It's not evident if this will constitute an entirely self-contained product or a companion, such as a remote.

The company also promises to revive a Wi-Fi connected TV shown at CES 2009. Release info and other details should be available with the unveiling next week.

Sling has been comparatively quiet this year and has primarily been defined by the launch of SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone, which generated controversy through AT&T's roundabout justifications for preventing it from using 3G where all other smartphones don't face the same limits. The carrier later admitted that pure bandwidth issues were the actual reason for the measure. [via Zatz Not Funny]
