Nokia debuts six devices, announces YouTube deal

BARCELONA, Spain-Nokia Corp. hopes to blur the lines between the wired Internet and the wireless Web with a new line of handsets and services.
The manufacturer announced six new devices-including three business-friendly E Series devices and a DVB-H mobile TV phone-as well as an effort to bring YouTube to wireless users.
Nokia said users of its N Series devices will be able to browse and view clips from YouTube via a preloaded Web browser dubbed the Nokia Video Center.
The YouTube pact is part of a broader effort by the Finnish company to encourage users to access Web-based videos from their handsets, according to Torsti Tenhunen, Nokia’s director of mobile TV and video consumption. The initial offering-a stripped-down version of YouTube’s clips that is scheduled to be expanded eventually-will be available to users in Europe and Asia before coming to market in North America.
“You can start streaming content immediately” through the new browser, Tenhunen said. “You don’t have to download.”
The browser will be embedded on the Nokia N95; the company said “most of the new Nokia N Series devices” eventually will feature the Nokia Video Center.
