Slingbox coming to the iPhone-Tonight?

We’ve heard that Sling Media has been working on an iPhone application, and we’ve also been told that it will stream over 3G and Edge. It appears we’ve been misled. Word is coming in that it will be WiFi only. For those not in the know, Slingbox is a pretty nifty device that lets you stream your television to a computer and now to mobile devices over the internet. While the concept is amazing, and people who own a Slingbox swear by them, I’m a little sad that we might not see it over a 3G connection. Looks like innovation is taking a hit yet again.

Anyway, it appears that we’ll be seeing the application available on the AppStore later tonight. Rumor says it’s $29.99. Sounds a little steep to me.
