When we were talking to Qualcomm about their new 2.5 GHz Quad-core smartphone chipset this morning, someone made a passing reference to the fact that Qualcomm had partnered with Netflix to help them bring their video streaming app to Android.
With that, we figured the Netflix app for Android had to be floating around somewhere in Barcelona — and sure enough, we found it.
As far as I know, this is the first time we’ve seen the Netflix Android app in action — and whatd’ya know: it looks like Netflix… running on Android. Alas, Mobile World Congress’ trademark network congestion is already rearing its head here, so we weren’t able to actually see any video streaming goodness. I’m pretty sure it looks just as you’d imagine.
The rep demoing the app wouldn’t/couldn’t spill the beans on when the Netflix Android app will be available, but we’ll go back and bug’em a bit more later.
