The only Sling product released in 2009 was an iPhone app. This has lead to some speculation that the company was in trouble, and even that the end of the Sling line could be nigh. Thankfully, the latest news from CES 2010 says otherwise. Dave Zatz, tech blogger, received an official invitation from Sling to view their line-up of products at CES. The invite promised;
"You'll experience an up close view of Sling's new placeshifting products including WiFi television, ultra-slim Slingboxes, and a next-generation touch screen device." Sling brought a WiFi TV to CES last year. It's possible we'll be seeing an update to that device, or that the TV being shown this year is a completely different product. Zatz seems to think the touchscreen device is an accessory remote to the VIP 922 Echostar DVR. We'll soon know if he was right or wrong.
CES 2010 will start on January 7, 2010 and lasts until the 10th. Of course CES news is already pouring in. Read about it in our CES 2010 section.
