Qik streaming video preinstalled on the Nokia N900

One application I find works extremely well on the Nokia N97 is Qik. Qik is a streaming video application and service that started out on Nokia devices like the N95 and has moved onto some other select mobile devices. I admit I was pleasantly surprised to see it loaded by default on the pre-production Nokia N900 that I am testing out. There has already been an update pushed to the N900 (update notifications are slick) so I thought I would try it out a bit. I embedded two videos I shot with the N900 for you to check out. For some reason that second video was cut off in the end and I think I tapped the stop button a bit early.

I think it is cool how the small Nokia N900 automatically appears in the lower right corner of the Qik videos. I did nothing to toggle this on and Qik must be pulling this info from the video. I plan to try this out more over time, but am very pleased to see it supported out of the box on the Nokia N900.

I noticed you called it the N900 Internet Tablet. What is Nokia branding this as? A mobile computer, internet tablet, or extremely powerful phone?

The term “mobile computer” never took off with the N97, just curious as to what Nokia is calling the N900.

That’s a good question indeed, I think Nokia calls it Internet Tablet. With the new Maemo O.S. Nokia has made a first step using open source software pretty much like HTC did with their HTC Hero. By the way the video you made with the N900 is of good quality.
