The Android Community web site has posted a nice sign that the Slingplayer Mobile Android app is getting closer to being released. They managed to get a hold of a copy of the beta to test on a Nexus One, and found that it played well on Wi-Fi though it had a few issues on 3G. Slingplayer works with the Slingbox appliance that captures your cable or satellite TV signal in your home and makes it available on the Internet. There are two versions, the Slingbox Pro-HD that can capture HD TV, and the Slingbox Solo, and the Slingplayer applications log in to the Slingbox to play TV. Windows and Mac versions of Slingplayer come with the Slingbox so that you can access it from notebook computers, and mobile versions of Slingplayer are for sale for Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Palm, Symbian phones and the iPhone.
