LG, Google Developing YouTube Phone

Mobile phone manufacturer LG is working with Google to develop a mobile phone that will allow you to upload videos directly to YouTube, according to an Adotas.

The phones should be available by the end of the year, the report stated.

"The technology will give users the ability to shoot, view and upload videos onto YouTube from their phones just as they would on their PCs. Also, videos on the site will be easily viewable," Adotas reported.

LG Electronics CEO Skott Ahn said the phones should be available globally by the end of the year.

This new content will provide more advertising space for Google and continues the relationship they have with LG that has a number of Google aps installed on some of their mobile phones.
