LG, YouTube Will Collaborate on Phone
The iPhone may have been the first mobile phone to feature YouTube functionality, but it apparently won’t be the last. According to AFP, LG Electronics has reached an agreement to make a phone featuring the popular video-sharing Web site.
The phone is set for release in Europe in the “second half” of this year; there is no word on when it may arrive in the United States.
Is this the long-awaited “Google phone”? Not exactly, as it is not being billed as such and has not been reported as including any other Google features besides YouTube. However, LG has begun selling phones in Europe featuring single-click use of Google search, maps, and other functions.
