Vodafone brings YouTube to mobile users

Vodafone brings YouTube to mobile users After already striking deals to give users access to social networking site MySpace and eBay, Vodafone is now set to offer YouTube services to its customers. Customers will now be able to view and add videos through Vodafone's mobile service. The service will be available to UK users first before eventually spreading to other countries.
By adding services like this, Vodafone, Europe's largest mobile phone company, can significantly boost revenues. Since all the videos on YouTube are of fairly low quality, video recordings from mobile phones fit the service just right. It's a good move from Vodafone in attempt to bridge the gap.

Oh NO! youtube needs more vids from people with video camera's, there are already loads with kids waving their phone about and laughing about nothing in particular.

i think there is a way to automate your youtube account to accept video messages from phones and convert and post them instantly, no?

I am a vodfone customer and am not really fussed about this i like youtube and have only recently being visited there. But i just use my vodafone for calls and the most hi tech i get is to transfer media files across to my computer using usb.
