Default Blackberry pearl on Cingular

Cingular is releasing the pearl soon next year. If so, will the slingbox work on the pearl through cingular? Cingular customer that just switched to T-mobile because I loved the pearl so much. Haven't cancelled cingular yet and have a 30 day return policy for T-mobile. If slingbox will work on cingular BB pearl, I will stay with cingular.

Welcome to the forums....

If it did work on a Cingular Blackberry, (which it doesn't work on any BB as of yet) it would work on a TMobile Blackberry as well.

This is a pipe dream that everyone would like to see Slingbox make into reality. It's definitely possible but, if you read in the thread, EDGE is kind of slow to make it really work so Slingbox would really have to put some research and engineering together to make it work. It may end up being limited to the EVDO BB's.

That would be Awesome!

I don't have a SlingBox but I would get one pretty Quick if this works on a 8700.

Does the SlingBox allow you to change channels at a distance?

Yes- it's basically your exact TV at home streaming on any internet connection. Obviously because it's video and the amount of data being streamed it's much better used over high-speed/broadband connections. However, I have read reports that if you change the settings in SlingPlayer mobile, it is possible to get 15 fps over EDGE. So that's at least viewable. I haven't tried it yet though, so I can't speak from first hand experience.

No-- right now it's only available for Windows Mobile phones. You must use the software SlingPlayer Mobile to stream TV from your home (plus your phone must be able to stream video--which no Blackberry can right now), but since the 8800 will be able to stream video, we want a SlingPlayer that will operate on the Blackberry OS! You can purchase a Slingbox at Circuit City or Best Buy-- any retailer like that.

Anyone else love that commercial of the guy at dinner watching the game but telling his wife he's on the phone, then he does that spazzy thing. Great commercial!!!

I was at a client's yesterday and they had just let go one of their tech guys. His EVDO enabled Windows phone was sitting around and i downloaded the Sling player for Windows and was amazed how well it worked. I was very impressed.

i am going to CES in January and Slingbox representatives will be there. I am going to ask a lot of questions and we might see some new product announcements. But a BlackBerry version is in the works, i have showed interest in this too, but hate WM 5. The more people we get, the better it is ti get the project underway

Sorry to ask the same question again but how can you change channels from a distance with your BlackBerry? Is there an application that installs on your BlackBerry that emulates your remote? Is it browser based?

Thanks,
