Featuring YouTube in Verison Wireless

As YouTube is getting more publicity, it's moving their videos to be viewable on cell phones for the first time under a deal with Verizon Wireless. I recently read online in Yahoo News an article, "Verison Wireless to Feature YouTube Videos" which relates to this matter. This kind of feature allows users to opload videos shot with their caera phones. The mobile YouTube service will b launched in early December and offered for no additional fee as part of Verizon's V cast service, which costs $15 per month or $3 per day. The companies didn't provide on exact launch day. Since the technologies being employed are stillbeing tested. Verison Wireless will feature a YouTube channel in its V Cast application, which is availible on 14 of the company's handset models. Like the website, the channel offers categories such as the most viewed or discussed videos from the YouTube site. If you want to opload a video shot on a Verizon handset to the YouTube website, users will use he same function, which is MMS, multimedia messaging service. Users will enter a short numeric code to send the video. The idea of having YouTube on your phone is a good, because that way we have another function to use on our hone when we're bored.

Why, why, why would anyone want to watch a YouTube video on their cell phone?
