Qik details premium video chat services on Sprint EVO 4G

We were a little shocked when we learned Qik might be charging $5 per month for its video chat service, but it turns out the fee is juts for premium options.

Customers who opt for the premium service will receive extras such as higher quality video, unlimited video archiving, video mail, and priority support. The premium option will include a monthly $4.99 subscription fee that will be bill via PayPal, but all EVO customers can test out these features for free till July 15th.

I would love to share my experiences with the new app, but it’s not available in the Android Market yet (even though Qik claims it is). Instead, we have a quick video demo after the break.

    I’ve also not been able to track down the new version. Which is pretty bad considering it’s on the actual box my phone came in, haha.

    The new version of Qik has been in the market since yesterday. There was even an update to that version pushed out this morning.

      multiple searches on my EVO turn up nothing…

        Still can’t find it on my EVO. Searching Qik on my Nexus turned up ‘Qik for HTC EVO 4G’ which I downloaded and moved over to my EVO. I’ve got it installed, but it wasn’t easy.

        Why in the world would that be showing up on my Nexus and NOT on my EVO? Someone derped that one big time.

    Do you have to be on Sprint to find Qik? CanI wait for a Sidekick Twist or Samsung Galaxy S on Tmobile I can download Qik from the Market on any Android phone with a front camera?

    Hmmm… Although video chat is flashy, I don’t think it’s worth the money. I doubt I would even use it because I rarely even talk on my phone as it is anymore.
