The Sling Media team is on a bit of a high this week. A few days after being acquired by Echostar (DISH), the Foster City, CA-based company is introducing a new product called the Slingbox SOLO. The sleek and very attractive device connects to a set-top box and streams video in either standard digital or high definition. It costs $179.99.
Sling Media also announced a new version of its SlingPlayer Mobile software for S60 software on Symbian OS platform that Nokia N-series and E-series phones. The new software costs $29.95, but will be free for N95 customers. If you remember, Sling CEO Blake Krikorian had showed up with a 3G Nokia N95 phone with this special software installed on our The GigaOM Show. Here is our beta review.

What’s more interesting is that all this stuff has been popping up about Sling, but no mention of Sling Catcher. Its not even mentioned on their website!
