SlingPlayer Mobile hits BlackBerrys Sling Media has announced that their SlingPlayer Mobile application is now available to all RIM BlackBerry users, and that the application has been sent in for review at the Apple App Store.
The beta of the application was released late last year and the new polished release includes new features such as "the ability to add or edit paired Slingboxes and Channel Favorites via the program instead of just SlingPlayer 2.0 for Windows."

Additionally, users will have the ability to turn on "low-bandwidth streaming, an enhanced aspect ratio or display mode support and audio track selection in the channel program, if available."

The updated interface now shows off connection type, volume level and includes a keypad lock.

RIM says BlackBerrys that are compatible are "the Bold, 8820, Curve 8320 and Pearl 8120 from AT&T; the Curve 8900, Curve 8320 and Pearl Flip 8220 from T-Mobile; as well as the Curve 8350i from Sprint Nextel."

The full application's main purpose is to allow users to stream video from a Slingbox media hub while controlling their TVs and DVRs through the application.

The application costs $30 USD.
