If you looked closely at Monday’s NYC pictures, you might have noticed something interesting running on Kevin Tofel‘s Samsung Q1. Using Dave Ciccone‘s Slingbox feed, we previewed Sling Media’s UMPC skin via SlingPlayer 1.2 (beta) and several classified files hidden on my person. To support the UMPC’s touch screen, Sling provides oversized UI elements for easy control via finger or stylus. The skin is quite attractive and I’m actually enjoying it on a standard laptop. Sling Media VP Jeremy Toeman indicates this first version of UMPC support is slated for an imminent release.
