Sling Media to Develop for 'Origami' PC
Not far behind Thursday's announcement of the Ultra Mobile PC by Microsoft, Sling Media said it would begin offering a customized version of its SlingPlayer software for the platform. The application would leverage the touch screen functionality and resolution that UMPCs provide in order to make the program easy to use.
Sling Media says it sees the new market as an ideal solution for portable entertainment. "Ultra-Mobile PCs give consumers one more way to take their TV with them wherever they go, and Sling Media is helping more of our customers experience the freedom and flexibility this device offers," said Bill Mitchell, vice president of the Mobile Platforms Division at Microsoft.
