[Qik live free mobile video streaming platform now supports BlackBerry devices.]
Redwood City, CA -- Qik, Inc., the leading live mobile video streaming platform, today announced alpha support for Blackberry devices from Research In Motion (RIM), including Blackberry Pearl and BlackBerry Bold. With Qik's free service, users can stream video live to the Internet in just two clicks from their mobile phone. Those watching the videos on the Web can take part in live interactive chat with the person broadcasting.
"We are excited to bring our lifestyle technology to the millions of Blackberry users worldwide," said Ramu Sunkara, co-founder and CEO of Qik. "In our quest to bring mobile live video sharing to the masses, we now support the broadest range of platforms including Symbian, Windows Mobile, Blackberry, and Java-enabled mass market phones."
BlackBerry mobile phones are among the most popular smartphones in North America, and are especially favored for fast and easy access to email. The addition of live video streaming to the phones' capabilities brings a whole new dimension of functionality to BlackBerry handsets. Qik is initially launching in alpha on the following handsets running Blackberry Operating System 4.5 and above: Blackberry Pearl 8120, Blackberry Pearl 8130 and Blackberry Bold. Support for Blackberry Curve and Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 will be available soon.
Owners of the above devices can get Qik by registering at http://qik.com/. Support for these devices is expected to enter beta in the coming weeks, and support for additional BlackBerry handsets is expected soon after.
