Blyk is supposed to be some sort of Euro-only free cellphone service that depends on ads and interstials to offer free calls and texting to subscribers. As we all remember, this business model really works well — just look at eMachines, for gosh sakes — but that won’t stop fools from trying it. To that end, it turns out the the service is currently delayed and probably won’t appear for a few months.
The company is led by former Nokia president, so that gives it some respectability, but I’m going to have to call bullshit on this one until I see it.
