iPhone Most Popular Camera Phone On Flickr

It's interesting to see the iPhone's popularity exemplified in places you might not be expecting. One such example is Flickr, Yahoo's photo sharing website. As it turns out, it's not only the most popular phone for browsing the web, but it's also the most popular phone for uploading photos to the web. Right now the 2-megapixel iPhone is currently the most popular camera phone for posting photos on Flickr, beating out Nokia's 5-megapixel N95.

Flickr rated the percent of users that uploaded at least one photo to their website from the given camera phones over the last year and compared the results. The graph has been "normalized", which means they account for the fact that people join or leave flickr every day, so it represents each device as a percent of all other cameras.

They also note:
"The graphs are only accurate to the extent that we can automatically detect the camera used to take the photo or shoot the video (about 2/3rds of the time). That is not usually possible with cameraphones, therefore they are under-represented."
