The Camera is Most Popular Mobile Application
An InfoTrends study shows that camera use in mobile phones continues to increase, 29% of U.S. Internet users have a camera phone, up from 18% in June 2005.

The study shows a growing "image-centric" segment where the digital camera features of a phone become the most important factor of their purchase.
