The iPhone is a $500 YouTube player
But those sneaky little PR folks at Cupertino decided to pack a little something extra into the press release. The iPhone will also be an overpriced portable YouTube player when it hits the shelves June 29th.
The news is a bit anticlimactic, seeing as YouTube launched a mobile interface this weekend, allowing pretty much anyone with a mobile phone and a data plan to watch videos of cute cats and ugly babies. But judging by the demo video Apple put on its website, the iPhone does have a pretty nifty looking navigation system for YouTube, and the videos play in full screen.
