The iPhone 3GS Video Revolution Is Here

The iPhone 3GS video revolution is here.

Google has announced that uploads from mobile phones to YouTube have increased by 400% since last Friday, when Apple’s new iPhone 3GS went on sale.

According to Google, the jump from the iPhone 3GS is part of a larger trend, driven by three things:

  • new video-enabled phones on the market;
  • improvements that make it easier to post a video to YouTube from your phone; and
  • a new feature on YouTube that allows people’s videos to be quickly shared through social networks. It takes just a minute to connect a YouTube account to Facebook, Twitter and Google Reader accounts. People can complete a simple, one-time connection on the upload page to allow all their friends and followers to get a real-time stream of their uploads to YouTube.

While a 400% jump is amazing, it’s also the tip of the iceberg. In the next few months, as the iPhone 3GS becomes establish, expect it to drive huge increases in mobile video publishing, just as the original iPhone drove adoption of mobile Web browsing.
