Qik's video chat client quickly pulled as the service has been overloaded

Qik's video chat client quickly pulled as the service has been overloaded
It's somewhat unimaginable to not think that the HTC EVO 4G would bring along some major challenges to Qik's sought out video chat feature, but it looks like the record setting amount of owners quickly put the service out of commission. According to Qik's blog, the client has been pulled from the Android Market due to the overwhelming amount of new users signing up for the service. Specifically there was an “unprecedented 20x the amount of workload on [their] severs” which ultimately caused some on and off connecting issues to the service. Even though Qik anticipated the significant growth with the HTC EVO 4G's launch, the assumptions were clearly still underrated as they are working feverishly to provision additional capacity to support the growing demand. On another note, it will be interesting to see how Sprint's network holds up now that they have a device that can truly test the integrity of their network.
