Sling Media launching Symbian SlingBox client for the U.S.

Ask and ye shall receive. Due to overwhelming consumer demand, Sling Media is poised to launch an American version of their mobile client for the Symbian operating system. For the 3 of you that don’t know, Sling’s mobile SlingBox client allows you to watch live TV re-broadcasted from your home set onto your mobile phone. As you might surmise, it’s an incredibly data-heavy proposition, meaning that anyone without 3G or Wi-Fi should probably leave this one alone but, it does actually work on EDGE. Given the current Symbian offerings from American carriers though, that leaves just one….AT&T! Anyone with a Nokia N75 or other HSDPA/UMTS-capable Symbian handset should hit the link and sign up for the beta…we hear that Sling is in need of a few good beta testers, beginning tomorrow morning…enjoy!
