Slingplayer for Symbian just released

I just installed Slingplayer on my E65 (download the trial version from http://downloads.slingmedia.com/ ) and it really is amazing to be able to watch live TV on my phone (in between making VoIP calls on it that is!). If you have a Slingbox, you have to have this app.

Forgive me for being thick although is that limited to just S60 or since it just says "Symbian" will it work with UIQ3 too?

(I'm assuming S60 and UIQ3 is to Symbian what KDE and GNOME are to Linux, so correct me if I'm wrong!).

I think I'm the one who's thick as I don't understand your question! But all I can suggest is that you download the trial version and see if it works for you.

Haha ok
I don't have a "Symbian" phone yet, as I'm still choosing one. I may get either an E70 (Series 60) or a P1i (UIQ3) so I wondered if this would work on either

I'm afraid no luck. They aren't compatible in that way so if a company writes code for S60, it will need porting to UIQ.

So - if it just says 'Symbian' on the site, you will need some clarification as to whether it will work or not. That said, trying to install it if it is the wrong type wont cause any damage (just a file type not supported error or similar) so that could be the quickest way to find out

FWIW - S60 vs UIQ is more akin to Red Hat vs Debian
