SlingPlayer Mobile is awesome
A couple of weeks ago, I posted that I was in the market for a smartphone so that I could play around with my Slingbox (and get rid of my lame-o, 2-year old Nokia phone). Well, thanks to the generosity of one of my co-workers who read my post, I am currently evaluating (and may buy) a slightly-used Siemens SX-66.

Installing SlingPlayer Mobile was a snap. I was watching video about 5 minutes after I initiated the download of the software.

Here is a screenshot of it running on the SX-66:

And here is a clip of me accessing a recorded show on my DirecTiVo


The coolest thing about the SX-66 is that it has built-in wifi, so I don't have to signup for a data plan with my current service provider (Cingular). I can use it at both home and work (and any other hotspot) to access my Slingbox. Sweet!
