Qik launches live video streaming on BlackBerry Wireless Handhelds

California mobile video company Qik on Sunday announced the alpha release of version 1.0 of Qik for BlackBerry. The free, downloadable application (covered here and demoed here) lets cell phone filmmakers stream video live from their mobile phone to Qik.com, social networks like MySpace, Orkut, and Facebook, and to any personal blog.

When you’re done filming, Qik also plays a post-production role by auto-publishing the recorded video stream to YouTube or Seismic. You can opt out by turning the feature off before or during the stream.

At the outset, Qik’s alpha download will only be available for the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 and 8130, and for the BlackBerry Bold. Qik plans to follow up with support for the BlackBerry Pearl Flip and the Curve.
