    The company currently has an alpha version that runs on "jailbroken" devices, but this is for demonstration purposes only.Sling Media intends to offer through the iTunes Store aversion that runs on non-jailbroken iPhones. Exactly when this will happen is not yet known, though.

    A spokesperson said, "We are looking forward to the iPhone SDK becoming publicly availablethis week and fully intend to developSlingPlayer Mobileusing the SDK and are looking forward to selling it through the iTunes store. We started the development process before the SDK was available to characterize the performance of the platform and ensure that we could deliver a high quality customer experience on the iPhone & iPod Touch platforms. The results have beenvery promising and we are eagerly awaiting the SDK's release so we can hopefully leverage what we have done already to deliver SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone."

    The iPhone version will join the versions of this software for BlackBerry, Palm OS, Symbian S60, and Windows Mobile,which are either already available or in development.
