SlingPlayer comes to HTC Touch Diamond, Pro and Xperia X1


Sling Media snuck out today via a blog post on their community site a new update to their SlingPlayer for Windows Mobile devices.

The main reason for the release is new found support for higher resolution screens. These new formats coming along in the form of display levels at 800 x 480, 640 x 480, 400 x 240 and 320 x 320.

All of which mean a new range of handsets can now have SlingPlayer rolled out on them, totalling 15 new mobiles altogether and just before Christmas too.

The new models are as follows, with their regions too: Palm Treo 800w (US), Sony Ericsson X1 (US & UK), Palm Treo Pro (US & UK), HTC Touch Diamond (US), HTC Touch Pro (US), Samsung Saga (US), Samsung Omnia (US), LG Incite (US & UK), Samsung Epix (US & UK), HP iPAQ 910 (US & UK), Pantech Duo (US) and the Samsung ACE (US).

The HTC Touch HD should also work with this release, as it shares the same resolution but nothing is guaranteed.

SlingPlayer is gratis on a months trial, with a subsequent nominal fee of £19.99 then afterwards. It has support for 3G and WIFI, with an unofficial compatibility for EDGE handsets.

Sling Media have also updated the software for portrait and landscape mode switching, roaming notifications, better digital channel support numbers and TV logos too.

We wonder if the X1 could have panel integration with SlingPlayer?
