If you own an iPhone or a Helio Ocean, chances are you've already been enjoying some of YouTube's tens of millions of videos through custom applications developed for your device. On the other hand, if you have a phone that supports streaming video and you've been visiting m.youtube.com through your mobile browser, you've only been able to view a smaller subset of YouTube for Mobile videos.
Starting today, m.youtube.com offers the full assortment of the tens of millions of videos that YouTube fans around the world have come to know and love. What's more, you can now log in to your YouTube account through your mobile phone browser to rate, share, and comment on videos, view your favorites, and even upload new videos.
Also launching today is a beta version of a YouTube for mobile Java application for a select number of mobile devices, including the Sony Ericsson K800 and W880 and the Nokia E65, N95, N73, 6110 Navigator, and 6120 Classic. Through this downloadable application (currently available in U.S. and U.K. English), you can access the entire YouTube for Mobile catalog. The application includes a super slick interface (with a carousel view of video tiles), as well as full community and uploading features.
