iPhone 3GS users to bombard YouTube

Owners of Apple's new iPhone 3GS could make use of the handset's new video functionalityby bombarding YouTube with clips, according to one analyst.
Avi Greengart, research director at Current Analysis, told the San Francisco Chronicle that the iPhone 3GS's video recording and video-editing tools make it easy for users to capture and upload clips.
"It's no question there are other devices that allow you to upload video to YouTube, and yet as we see on the photo side or with the mobile web statistics, iPhone users just do things more," he said.
According to a Nielsen study, iPhone users are 10 times more likely to view video, five times more likely to surf the internet and nine times more likely to play games on their iPhone than average mobile users.
The iPhone 3GS launched last Friday, and Apple reported that 1 million handsets were sold over the weekend. Apple also revealed that six million customers downloaded the new iPhone 3.0 software in the first five days since its release.
"Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO.
