Special Thanks to Jamie (@Spark_PR) for sharing some additional information about this new mobile video site.


blinkx clearly states it is the world’s largest and most advanced video search engine, and they have now launched a public beta version of its world-class product that is specifically designed for mobile access at http://m.blinkx.com/.  Consumers can now access the blinkx Mobile Video Search beta site from any phone with a Web browser that can play MP4s, including  some select blinkx_001BlackBerry Devices. blinkx did work on my 8900 and gave me the option to play or save, however blinkx compatible device list only shows the BlackBerry 9700 and BlackBerry 9630.  If you try it on another device and it works well, please leave a comment about what device you used and how well it worked.

The m.blinkx.com homepage has been optimized for ease-of-use on a mobile device, displaying a blinkx Video Wall of nine thumbnails of the top stories from around the Web, as well as one-click category browsing, and a large central search bar so consumers can look for videos on any topic they choose; from news and sports, to polar bears, Lady Gaga, or how to make a water gun alarm clock.  The videos are streamed to the user’s handheld device and play in MP4 format.
