Qik for the iPhone!


Today’s announcement by Qik that they will be supporting the iPhone trumps everything I heard from WWDC.

This is fantastic. No idea if this is WiFi only or if it supports 3G well too. A download will be available next week so jailbreaking is going to be required–at least for now.

I’m very curious to see how the chat works. Can’t wait to give it a try on my iPhone. I guess I now have reason enough to jailbreak my iPhone.

The very unfortunate thing here is that the video is going to suck the battery life out of the iPhone and unlike let’s say the Nokia N95 (which supports Qik), there’s no way to change the battery on the fly. I’m guessing we could run from a portable, external battery pack powering the iPhone via the USB/power connector.

FlixWagon, a competing service, interestingly announced today that it too will be supporting live broadcasting from the iPhone. Cool.
