Verizon phones to show YouTube

Verizon announces plan to include YouTube videos on its 3G handsets

If you can't get enough of exploding Mentos in Diet Coke bottles or the guy who showcases the history of dance, Verizon Wireless has some good news for you. The carrier announced today that it signed a deal with YouTube to bring a limited number of videos to Verizon's 3G handsets starting in early December. Users also will be able to use their phone's camcorders to record their own videos to share with other Verizon customers or YouTube viewers. Granted, the video quality from a camera phone won't be spectacular but if you want to catch your best friend or your local politician making a fool of himself, then you'll be good to go.

To view the content, Verizon customers will need an EV-DO phone such as the new LG enV and a subscription to the carrier's V Cast streaming video service. V Cast is available for $3 per day or $15 per month.
