Qik Video Chat For MyTouch 4g(UPDATE)

So Qik Inc. has released its video chat app for the MyTouch 4g into the wild. In the description it says *WORKS ONLY WITH T-MOBILE MYTOUCH 4G* but it installed on my Evo 4g just fine. It even works better than the evo version. It automatically finds contacts that have video chat capabilities weather its phone or some other service. (so my guess is it may work with skype users, cause it found my friend who has iphone 4) I'll be back with more details when I get them.....

"T-Mobile® announced that their new myTouch® smartphone will come with Video Chat and Video Mail capabilities from Qik.
T-Mobile myTouch users will be able to see who is available for a live Video Chat using presence information integrated into the myTouch’s address book, and have the option to leave Video Mail using Qik when someone is unavailable.
According to T-Mobile, the myTouch “is expected to be available in time for the holidays.”

OK, so Ive found out that the app WILL come pre-installed on phone at launch along with the Galaxy Tab for T-Mobile, but is viewable in the market to users with android 2.1(eclair) and up. Also to correct the above statement about skype calling, so far it finds users in your contacts who have qik installed on there android device or the same similar protocol. (that's why it found iphone 4 contact) If anyone finds out more about the app feel free to contact so we can further update the post. Until then enjoy tinkering with it & remember where you read it first :)
