Wikitude launches Premium version – Ad-Free & “Beam Me” Feature


Wikitude was originally introduced back at BlackBerry App World 2011 where OS 7 was formerly introduced by RIM.  Since then, we’ve seen the Wikitude mobile application come preloaded on most OS 7 devices.  The company has announced today its availability for premium services – including no advertisements within the application and the “Beam Me” feature which allows you to browse what’s around including BBM users.  Hit the jump below for the official press release and more on Wikitude’s announcement.
