Vodafone to launch YouTube Mobile

Mobile phones, Top stories

Vodafone has been busy boosting its Vodafone Live! service this week, with announcements for MySpace Mobile and eBay Mobile. And now they’ve announced another biggie – YouTube.

How much of a service being offered isn’t clear. The company statement promises “a version of the popular YouTube service directly from Vodafone live!”, which doesn’t sound like a full service. This seems to be confirmed by “a daily selection of new videos” as one of the big selling points. However, Vodafone goes on to say it is offering uses the chance to upload their own content from their mobile phones and “search across multiple categories”. So is it or isn’t it?

The service will launch initially in the UK, so we’ll find out the full details nearer to the (as yet unconfirmed) launch date.
