BlackBerryOS.com - Skype acquires ownership of Qik
  • Skype acquires ownership of Qik



    Skype wastes no time in acquiring video calling rival, Qik. The transfer of shares and funds between the shareholders of Qik and Skype was completed today and Qik is now under the ownership of Skype.

    According to Skype, the two companies will:

    "focus on providing a richer, more integrated experience that will allow people globally to share experiences in real-time video across different platforms,"
    And it notes that Qik's:

    "deep engineering capabilities and strong mobile relationships will be an impressive complementary fit with Skype."
    This should lead up to some even more exiting video calling integration with all the top of the line Smartphones/Tablets coming out with front facing video cameras. So what do you think of the new name "Sqik." Mmm, on the other hand, maybe not.

    That was Chen's focus. Business sector. As long as they can start turning a significant profit, BlackBerry can comeback as a big marketshare player again.
