Skype Acquires Qik for $100 Million?




BusinessInsider learned from a source that Skype has acquired Qik for $100 million.

Internet phone giant Skype has acquired Qik, the service that lets you stream video from your smartphone, for around $100 million, a source tells us. Skype will probably announce the news this week at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, this source says. We've reached out to Qik and Skype for confirmation but have not heard back. This is a reliable source, however, who has been correct about big acquisitions in the past.

Qik is a mobile live video streaming and two-way video conferencing application that allows users to stream live video from their cell phones to the internet. Qik enables users to record and upload video directly from your iPhone.
