Lg cellphones to directly play and upload YouTube videos

Seems like the launch of iPhone has made a cellphone more of a multimedia device than a communication device.
Joining the race, LG has announced that they are planning to upgrade their cellphones so as to enable them to view and upload videos to YouTube.

The service will allow users to shoot video on their handsets and send it directly to the popular online video site, LG said in a statement. The first phones with the ability to do this will be available worldwide "at the end of the year."

But the deal is far from exclusive. LG also inked a similar agreement with Google rival Yahoo Inc. to put that company's services on some handsets. Specifically, LG will install Yahoo Go for Mobile 2.0, Yahoo Mail and Yahoo Messenger on some handsets. [via]
