Boston Mobile News: Week of 4/20/09

“If there were any doubt that Greater Boston is holding its own as an international hub for the mobile industry, you only need to look at the growth of the local chapter of Mobile Monday…” MassHighTech covers Mobile Monday Boston.

We’ve released Q1 Boston mobile investment numbers. $215 million in Q1 – the biggest quarter in the last 5. Check out our charts and Globe coverage.

New Atlantic Ventures raised a new fund for investment in high growth areas like mobile.

Cambridge-based E Ink, the providers of high resolution displays to Amazon’s Kindle 2 and Sony eReader, got a nice profile in the Globe this week. Read that with this kick ass article about eBooks in the WSJ.

And there’s some wacky business going on today thru 5/10 at the Boston Cyber Arts Festival.

Global Roaming technology powers QikRoam deal

picture1Congratulations to Florian Seroussi and the team at Miami-based Global Roaming/Celtrek.

Global Roaming/Celtrek’s technology is powering the deal signed last week between partner Cubic Telecom and live mobile video streaming platform Qik.

The agreement, signed at Qik’s Redwood City offices by Cubic’s Pat Phelan, Irish VoIP visionary and Corkman extraordinaire, is for a new service called QikRoam, provided via a special SIM card that lets Qik users travel abroad and stream live video over Qik without having to worry about excessive roaming charges.

The QuickRoam deal signing was covered live at TechCrunch, here.

Qik, by the way, has since announced it is bringing its Qik live video streaming feed to Facebook … so perhaps we’ll soon be streaming live mobile video feeds of our monthly MoMo Miami meetups via Facebook!
