    After a public beta spanning a couple months, Sling is rolling out the latest piece of its expanding SlingPlayer Mobile portfolio this week -- this time for Android, plugging the biggest coverage gap it currently has. This is the same app we recently had an opportunity to check out, but since that preview, we're happy to report that it's been massaged into a more stable, more usable setup -- gone are the disconnect crashes we'd had before. Furthermore, Sling claims they've specifically worked to improve load and response times with this version, and we have to say that the effort is noticeable -- this definitely feels like the fastest SlingPlayer Mobile we've used to date. It's officially available starting tomorrow from the Market in Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, the UK, and the US for $29.99. Follow the break for the full press release.

    Is there a monthly fee or is the $30 a one time charge?
    Search "kookahdoo" on the market for my themed apps.

    I hear Verizon blocks Slingbox Streams. How is this working over peoples 3G connection?

    Secondly, If I get a Slingbox SOLEY for the purpose of "Slinging" to my Droid should I just get the Slingbox Solo or should I get the Pro-HD?
