YouTube and LG decides to partner to come out with phone, not sure if it would be successful. I’m not really fond of LG phones.
Youtube, SKorea’s LG agree to develop mobile phone
SEOUL (AFP) – South Korea’s 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.
LG Electronics said the proposed model will enable users to upload, view and share video clips or user-created content (UCC) online freely without using computers.
“LG Electronics will unveil the mobile handset that fully supports the YouTube service for the first time in Europe in the second half of this year,” the South Korean firm said in a statement.
LG Electronics, the world’s fifth-largest mobile phone manufacturer, is also stepping up its partnership with Google, the world’s largest Internet serach engine which owns YouTube.
It began selling third-generation (3G) handsets called “Google phones” with software installed for directly using the Google service, in Europe last month.

If they really do come out with this YouTube LG phones, I will mock at it for 1 week at least. Anyway, the market is just not ready for videos being served via mobile phones I think. Phones need to be a lot cheaper and the phone subscription need to be made cheaper too. That way, all the new-generation kids would go get cheated and purchase these YouTube phones. The students would find it fun… If they have the money.
And Daryl and I were talking about the LG logo, we don’t like it a lot.
Me: LG has a frigging smiley that doesn’t look like its smiling. it looks like it’s winking at you but it really is just a terrible attempt to put alphabets ‘L’ and ‘G’ into a logo
D: i always think it’s freaky. bcos i imagine a real person w an LG head. but i always imagine freaky things.
Me: i don’t wish to imagine that, it’s nightmarish
The LG logo is the one with the red colored head.
