Although the buzz about YouTube’s mobile site started months ago when their hidden mobile site was uncovered, an official launch date has been announced. According to Katie Fehrenbacher YouTube will launch their mobile site in June of this year once their exclusive deal with Verizon has ended.
Now everyone can get excited about watching other people make fools of themselves from the comfort of their mobile phone. While my phone doesn’t have high speed internet, I’m sure YouTube has some sort of technology to improve the loading speed on my smartphone. Honestly, I don’t take advantage of my mobile internet to often except when I’m using Google Maps Mobile. According to statistics though, there are millions of users that have the capacity and desire to take advantage of mobile video.
