Qik: Now Playing on an Android Phone Near You

qik-androidLive video streaming is all the rage these days, but I can’t take part of it with either of my handsets. That’s probably a good thing for you, though: The only exciting scene yesterday was our cat apparently dealing with a hangover. If you have an Android (s GOOG) handset and some more interesting subject matter, you can grab an early alpha of Qik from the Android Marketplace. You’ll need Android 1.5 on your phone and a microSD card for the installation.

This version already supports live chat and video sharing through Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, but bear in mind that it is an alpha. There’s bound to be some hiccups, so don’t rely on it for live streaming a super-important occasion.
