YouTube Goes Mobile Again!

YouTube Mobile has finally done the cell phone justice by launching an update to their website which will allow all 3G phones with video streaming support to access YouTube for Mobile, a service once reserved only for the likes of Verizon and Helio. Prepare to get fired from your job because YouTube is now more addictive than ever.

Among the changes, users can now log in to their YouTube account and access their favorite stuff, upload videos from their phones, and view an enormous number of videos that have never appeared on for everyone else’s eyes.

There is also a new Java version of YouTube for Mobile that can be downloaded for free on a limited number of J2ME MIDP2 cell phones with streaming capabilities. Now in beta and only available to mobile warriors in the U.S. and U.K., the application is initially supported on only select Sony Ericsson and Nokia devices.

With the new ability to upload directly from your cell phone, I’m predicting a lot more crazy and hilarious videos to be seen in the coming months. Excellent.
