Got a Slingbox and a new Windows 7 Phone?  Congratulations – the two are now on speaking terms.

According to a Slingbox press release, SlingPlayer Mobile is now available in the Windows Marketplace.  It'll set you back US$29.99 — and, unless you already own a Slingbox SOLO or HD, you'll have to upgrade your settop box as well — but now your shiny new WP7 will have streaming-media capabilities.

BUT WAIT!  THERE'S MORE!  A hidden sign-up page on the Slingbox site announces "We have been hard at work on an iPad version of SlingPlayer Mobile. When it becomes available it will be priced at $29.99, the same as all of our SlingPlayer Mobile applications. The new app will take full advantage of the iPad's beautiful display."
