YouTube Coming to LG CellPhones
LG Electronics said Tuesday it has signed an agrement with YouTube, the world's biggest video-sharing website, to develop a mobile phone which can operate the service. The proposed model will enable users to upload, view and share video clips or user-created content online freely without using computers.
For upcoming YouTube-enabled handsets, LG will apply a new user interface for easily accessing and uploading video content. LG's YouTube-enabled handsets will be available worldwide starting at end of this year.
LG first announced its agreement to pre-install Google's services on its handsets in March 2007. As a first step in this partnership, LG and Google have already launched the world's first HSDPA smartphone with Google services pre-installed, the LG-KS10, which features Google Search, Gmail Mobile, and Google Maps Mobile. The LG-KS10 first hit shelves in Italy this past April.
