YouTube on your mobile phone – thanks to the Orb and 3's X-Series

Mobile phones

Yep we were a bit cynical about it too, but one of the big stories from today’s 3 X-Series launch is that subscribers will be able to watch YouTube vids on their mobile. Apparently the Orb software, which will be pre-installed on X-Series mobiles, allows the user to remote control their home PC. So the big news is that you’ll be able to watch YouTube vids, stream music stored on your hard drive and more and you won’t have to pay mega expensive bandwidth charges to the network as, after a payment of £15-20, it will all be free.

More on the launch here and word for word transcription of the day Yahoo, Google and Microsoft made sweet mobile love together is here.
