Qik moves beyond mobile phones to mobile devices
Qik’s Video Chat service was featured at the launch event for the Samsung Galaxy Tab in New York City yesterday. This is Qik’s first public demonstration of how Qik’s service is able to move beyond mobile phones to support a broader array of mobile devices. Samsung Galaxy Tab users can use Qik for two-way live video conversations over wifi or 3G. With Qik, tablet owners can share their face using the front camera or can switch to the 3-megapixel, rear-facing camera to share what’s happening around them.
Tablet owners can also take advantage of Qik’s sharing and messaging capabilities to stay connected with friends and family even when they can’t talk live. With Qik they’ll be able to capture and instantly share videos through email, social networks, video sharing sites, blogs or by sending Video Mail directly to another mobile device
