Vodafone users can now access YouTube, eBay and MySpace
Mobile phone firm Vodafone is to enable users to access and update video website YouTube via their handsets, in its third internet tie-up this week.

Following similar deals with social networking website MySpace and auction site eBay, Vodafone customers will now be able to view and add videos.

The YouTube service will initially be available to Vodafone's UK customers before spreading to other countries.

Adding such interest services allows mobile phone firms to boost revenues.

Vodafone is Europe's largest mobile phone company, while YouTube was bought by search engine giant Google for $1.65bn (883m) in October last year.
