Google has announced that YouTube for Mobile is expanding to target 3G mobile phones from companies including Motorola, Sony Ericsson, LG and Nokia.

YouTube offers a downloadable Java application for some mobile phones in the UK and US that support J2ME MIDP2. These include the Sony Ericsson k800, w800, Nokia e65, n95, n73, 6100 navigator and 6120 classic.

YouTube videos are already available for Apple iPhones, but the newest announcement expands the videos to be available to other mobile phones that support 3G networking and the RTSP protocol.

YouTube videos are available to mobile users in countries throughout Asia, Europe, South America and elsewhere, providing access to the same features users can get from YouTube via a web browser running on a computer such as rating and commenting on videos, access to 'Channels' and more.
