SlingPlayer headed to Android and webOS? PreCentral has posted, interestingly, that a recent job listing on the Sling Media site shows the company is looking for a Senior Mobile User Interface Designer, one that is "knowledgeable about and/or interested in becoming an expert on the existing user interface paradigms used on iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Symbian, Android, and Palm WebOS.
Sling Media was noted as one of Palm's partners during the CES 2009 event that launched the Pre however there had been no word since that a working SlingPlayer was ever coming.

SlingPlayer is a streaming TV application that "connects users on all types of computing platforms to their Slingbox which then gives them complete control over their living room TV. The Slingbox gives customers the ability to control any Audio/Video device including analog cable, a digital cable box, satellite receiver, digital video recorder (DVR) a DVD player or even a still video camera."

The software was released for BlackBerries in March and more recently for iPhones.
