The Korean tech giant LG has signed an agreement with Google to develop a cellphone aimed specifically at YouTube users.

Apple's iPhone might allow you to watch YouTube videos, but LG's phone goes several steps further, allowing you to record video and upload them directly to YouTube.  The phone will also support 3G and will go on sale in Europe int he second half of 2007.

It's an interesting idea, but I do wonder how many YouTube users will be willing to pay for a cellphone to allow them to record and upload video without having to turn to a PC.

Anyone here interested in such a phone?
