Qik.com - Live Streaming Video From Your Phone

By
Mortgage and Lending with GSW Consulting Group

Qik.com, Qik enables you to stream live video directly from your cell phone!

Now, I am not a 100% sure which carriers have which phone models-you will have to check that out on your own, so if it turns out that Verizon has one of these phones, hooray! I have a Blackberry without the camera because Verizon can't get in the game doesn't have that model. In any case Blackberry and iPhone don't look to be compatible at this time. Some of these Nokia models are cheap though, I would spend the dough just to have live streaming video from anywhere... that is too much!

For real estate this could be great, show property to anyone anywhere. No more redundancy, at a caravan find a property stream it to your website. Out and about find a perfect property for that very particular client call them up stream the video live. I love things that make life easier!!

Here are the specs for this service from their website:

Since Qik is new to this they say that they are constantly adding support for new phones - which would be nice since none of the phones are Blackberry or iPhone! Currently, they support video streaming on Nokia S60 phones: N71, N73, N75, N76, N77, N80, N82, N91, N92, N93i, N95, E50, E51, E61i, E65, E70m E90 Communicator, 3250, 5500, 5700 Xpress Music, 6110 Navigator, 6120 Classic, 6121 Classic, and 6290. You also need a Data Plan and it is advisable to have an Unlimited Data Plan from your service provider as video streaming can consume considerable amount of bandwidth.


This company is in their alpha release so registration is only through invitations. If you are interested, you can go to Qik.com and enter your phone number. They send you an SMS with a link to verify your request. Once you click the link from the SMS and confirm your request they will evaluate your request and get back to you.

Bridget, - Did you get an invitation?  Are you up and running yet? I just saw this last night in a web e-commerce class.  I was blown away at how this will open up our world.
