Camera phones haven't outpaced regular digital cameras - yet

Ontela, a Seattle-based company that provides technology infrastructure to wireless companies that allows consumers to unlock the photos in their camera phones, released a research report today that finds camera photo uploads are still fewer than those from digital cameras.

Ontela, a Seattle-based company that provides technology infrastructure to wireless companies that allows consumers to unlock the photos in their camera phones, released a research report today that finds camera photo uploads are still fewer than those from digital cameras. That might not seem like much news, but considering how frequently camera phone pictures and videos seem to be popping up in the news lately coupled with predictions that camera photos would account for 62 percent of pictures uploaded to the Internet this year, it appears that only 11 percent of photos on Flickr are produced from phones.

Does this surprise anyone? Any chance these numbers could change dramatically in the next year or two?
