Flickr is one of the first websites that comes to mind when you have some photos to share with friends or when you just want to upload your cat photo albums for everyone to admire. For several years Flickr has been the place to upload and share photos, no matter your how skilled you are or what gear you have.
Talking about gear, Flickr has pretty interesting statistics regarding the most used cameras that upload to their site. The top spot is taken by the good ol’ Nikon D90 – a nearly three-year-old DSLR camera, which is not such a surprise. The real shocker, is the runner-up. It’s the iPhone 4, and looking at the charts below it comes really, really close to taking the crown as Flickr’s most popular camera. Read more »

Sony Ericsson is hard at work with the XPERIA Play media campaign. You can really tell it’s very important for Sony Ericsson to sell the life out of this device.
