We bet y’all thought this day would never come, huh? Well, change your pants, people. It’s officially unofficial. Sling has just updated their website, and is in the process of sending out emails to people announcing that the much-awaited SlingPlayer Mobile for BlackBerry software will enter into a public beta on December 30th. A nice late Christmas gift? You betcha’. We’re sworn to secrecy at the moment, but, how do we say this… You. Will. Love. It. The software supports pretty much all current models (ones with 3G and/or Wi-Fi are preferred) like the Bold, Curve 8900, Curve 8320, and Pearl Flip 8220. All in all, it’s awesome that this is finally being released. Boardroom meetings will never be the same…
