SlingPlayer coming to the Pre?

SlingPlayer coming to the Pre?
Our friends over at Engadget have gotten their hands on an internal Sprint document that highlights some of the apps we can expect to see at or near the launch of the Pre.  The highlight here is SlingPlayer, but other big players are the AP and New York Times, EA, Facebook, ESPN, Twitter, Epocrates and, to make the transition from your iPhone easier, Mark/Space.  Some of the ones mentioned we've seen demoed, such as FlightView and Pandora.  Looks like a pretty solid start if you ask us!

Its coming out fot the Pre, and I am still waiting for it to work with the Storm. Hopefully it will work with the Storm 2, because of the added WIFI. P.S. 1st

Can someone explain what some of these applications do. I know about AP and new York Times, Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, and Slingplayer. But what's Mark/Space, Epocrates, EA, and Flightview?

epocrates is a HUGE medical application that doctors use, ea (electronic arts) is a video game company, and flightview lets you check flight status (time of departure, expected arrival, and actually see where the flight is at any given time)... dont know what mark/space is (could be a myspace typo, but idk)... hope that helps...

The only thing that I know of, from this lies, is epocrates. I use it and it's VERY helpful if and when I need to use a PDR (physician Desk Reference) It gives information (i.e. indication/ contraindication, side effects, dosing, pharmackinetics/dynamics etc.). PDR's can be HUGE, like dictionaries you find in libraries!!! The fact that it can all fit into a handheld device helps physicians that much more.

..Mark/space is a program that will allow the Prē to sync with Mac computers

that seems very interesting... nice to see someone other than apple is giving love to those that use macs... for the longest, it was a pain to sync your (insert smartphone here) with a mac (from what i have heard)...

Thanks. At first I was saying to myself that these applications were pretty ordinary and not that impressive but now that I have the full picture, I agree that its a pretty good start.
