The news has been announced by Linden Lab today – and you’ll be able to find out more in our special Designing Worlds show at 2pm SLT today, where we talk to Nate Barsetti, Senior Manager, Customer Relations, OnLive, and also Danger Linden, aka Don Laabs, Senior Director of Product at Linden Lab. The show will be followed by a live discussion in our Garden of Dreams studio, which will be streamed live on Aview.TV.
SL Go is launching today in its open beta format, and offers the opportunity to access Second Life on tablets (although not yet on iPads). But it’s much, much more than this - you will also be able to access SL Go through the OnLive micro-console to TVs, or just connect through the OnLive app to lower-end PCs and Macs.

This is an OnLive initiative, developed in co-operation with Linden Lab, but not a Linden Lab product. When I spoke to Danger Linden, Head of Product at the Lab, he said he saw it as more analogous to Linden Lab working with a third party viewer.
