Apple Goes After The Camera Market Too

Any iPhone owner knows that there are a lot of gadgets and objects the iPhone has replaced. Among its Web and communications abilities phone owners don’t need maps, notepads, music players and a litany of other single-serving devices.

Now, there’s something else the iPhone is poised to completely replace for many owners: the standard point and shoot camera.

Take a look at Flickr, the popular photo sharing Web site, where the statistics of the cameras used to upload images to the site show that the iPhone is by far the most popular compared to other cameras, including Nikon and Canon.

And although this trend has been a long time in the making as the iPhone’s camera quality has improved, a new series of patents that have emerged from the company show that the Apple could completely replace the traditional camera for many.
