If you remember a few weeks ago we dropped the line that Sling was updating their PocketPC client and that they were aiming for a Christmas launch.

Well, looks like they came through as they just announced that new version, which has been making the beta rounds in the last 2 weeks.

Enough small talk, here's what's new. Basically a slew of new device support (full list after the jump) and some new stuff like:

  • Provided you install SlingPlayer Mobile using the .EXE file, it will once again sync Slingbox information between SlingPlayer 2.0 and SlingPlayer Mobile.

  • SlingPlayer Mobile can now perform major/minor tuning, which is often seen for those tuning digital broadcast channels (5.2, 5.3, etc.).

  • The new SlingPlayer Mobile also includes a roaming notification feature, which will let you know if your phone switches to roaming mode while streaming.

  • Updated channel logos.

Not bad at all!
