SlingPlayer for the iPhone on 3G

Since making the switch from Windows Mobile and Blackberry to the iPhone I thought not having access to my Slingbox would be my biggest issue.  When SlingMedia started their iPhone application development I was excited.  I mean this would be ideal.

About 18 months ago my 1st gen Slingbox took a dive, power supply I thought.  I tried reviving it with another power supply, but no luck.  So I just tossed the unit onto my growing pile of old, out dated, powered plastic.

This morning however my ears perked up.  Slingbox’s iPhone application has now been approved for 3g.  The original iPhone application on used Wifi.  Having 3G may have just changed my tune on watching live TV in my iPhone.  Maybe it’s time to invest in a new Slingbox?
