Sling Media has announced that it will be showing a proof of concept version of its SlingPlayer Mobile application for the iPhone at WWDC. The current version runs on jailbroken iPhones only, and will not be made available to consumers until the app can be reworked using Apple’s official SDK. According to the company, the proof of concept version was developed “to characterize the performance of the platform” and to ensure delivery of “a high quality customer experience on the iPhone & iPod Touch platforms.” Sling Media hopes to release SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone through the new App Store later this year.
