New HTML5 YouTube Mobile site launched

The Google team has updated the mobile version of YouTube today with a new m.youtube.com site featuring an HTML5 enabled interface. Contrary to the majority I not going to hype this thing up as if it was the second coming of the Christ just because it uses HTML5 for the UI and because if bypasses Apple‘s stupid “3G = Crappy quality video” restriction in the native YouTube application. You heard that right folks! Everybody’s going gaga over this thing because the iPhone can now playback good quality YouTube videos over 3G…just like Android, Windows Mobile and Symbian phones with their native YouTube application…meh. The new UI is a nice touch but nothing mind blowing at all (and MS is screwed once again here because of the lack of HTML5 support in IE Mobile)…And just to be clear, the video aren’t in HTML5, only the UI. Check the video demo after the break:
