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.
