LG Electronics and YouTube announced an agreement to provide
YouTube services on its handsets, allowing users to view
videos and easily upload them directly to YouTube.com.
For upcoming YouTube-enabled handsets, LG will apply a new
user interface for easy accessing and uploading video
content. LG?s YouTube-enabled handsets will be available
worldwide starting at end of this year.
"This new service will connect people like never before. For
the first time, LG customers will be able to film, upload
and view videos on YouTube using their mobile phone just as
they would be able to from their home computer," said Dr.
Skott Ahn, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile
LG first announced its agreement to pre-install Google?s

this partnership, LG recently launched the LG-KS10, which

for mobile. The LG-KS10 first hit shelves in Italy this past
