Hello scennimo - to answer your question,
What is so special about it that it cost another $29 bucks?
SlingPlayer Mobile for iPad is optimized for the higher resolution viewing experience the iPad offers and has many new feature sets not available in previous versions of SlingPlayer Mobile. It also takes advantage of the latest streaming technologies available in iOS 4.2. It is a different product than SlingPlayer Mobile for iPhone or iPod touch.
Hope that helps to answer your question.
