Qik video chat free on Evo 4G, $5 for "premium" features

Qik clarifies that Evo 4G video chat not paid

Qik this morning clarified its approach to video chat on the Evo 4G. The Android phone will always have regular two-way video chat for free. The $5 monthly add-on is for "advanced premium features" that will be detailed at the same time as the Evo 4G launches, on June 4.

What those features would entail wasn't said, although the extra bandwidth of 4G could allow for more than two people in a video chat or higher-quality video in one or both directions. Other apps, such as Fring, will usually be free but won't necessarily have significant extras that could justify subscription fees.
