LG Electronics plans to offer the full YouTube service on selected handsets at the end of this year.
As part of the agreement with YouTube, LG will install a user interface on the handsets enabling users to film, upload and view videos from the popular video-sharing service directly from their LG mobile devices.
This is not the first mobile partnership between LG and YouTube parent company Google. In April, the two launched the LG-KS10, an HSDPA smartphone featuring Google’s search, Gmail Mobile and Maps Mobile services in Italy. YouTube content is also offered through Verizon’s V CAST mobile TV service and AT&T.
