Qik Now Available on Windows Mobile Phones

By Anil Sharma June 06, 2008
Qik is now available on Windows Mobile phones like Motorola Q and Samsung BlackJack, as well as the Nokia N-Series phones.
 
Microsoft expects to sell 20 million Windows Mobile licenses in FY08, with phones available in 55 countries. As Microsoft and Qik join forces, both companies extend their global footprint and capture the growing market of video sharing and participating enthusiasts.
 
“We’re thrilled to be working with Microsoft and extending Qik’s live streaming service to Windows Mobile phones,” said Ramu Sunkara, co-founder and CEO of Qik, in a statement.
 
“We are also excited to partner with the Windows Mobile team to optimize Qik for the Windows Mobile platform,” Sunkara stated.
 
“We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Microsoft. In the meantime, Qik continues to provide a service that helps keep friends and families stay connected, features breaking news from professional media and citizen journalists, and fosters a totally new kind of communication,” concluded Sunkara.
 
Qik, a live mobile video streaming platform, enables anyone to stream video live from their mobile phones to the Web, from anywhere in the world.
 
Its innovative, patent-pending technology enables anyone to share their moments live with their friends and family or the entire world.
 
“Qik is at the forefront of how video from mobile devices should be shared and integrated into our social lives,” said Scott Rockfeld, group product manager at Microsoft.
 
“As people increasingly expect high quality, streaming video on mobile, Microsoft is committed to working with our partners to deliver the best video experience on Windows Mobile phones,” added Rockfield.
 
Qik, in addition to being the live mobile-to-Web video service of choice for bloggers like TechCrunch editor Michael Arrington, FastCompany.tv's Robert Scoble, and CNET's Daniel Terdiman, is also delivering exciting footage shot by a wide selection of users across entertainment, business, sports, and technology.
 
Recent Qik videos of note have included Hollywood trade magazine Variety's live coverage of Cannes (including appearances and interviews with Michael Moore, Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen and other notables), and the Mars landing recorded live from mission control by U.S. Congressman John Culberson, among others.
