User-generated video aggregator service YouTube announced its mobile uploads have increased 400 percent a day in the week since Apple released its iPhone 3G S, the first version of the iconic smartphone to offer video capture capabilities. Writing on The YouTube Blog, YouTube product manager Dwipai Desai and community manager Mia Quagliarello note that in the last six months, the firm has seen uploads from all mobile devices increase 1,700 percent. \'This growth represents three things coming together: new video-enabled phones on the market, improvements to the upload flow when you post a video to YouTube from your phone, and a new feature on YouTube that allows your videos to be quickly and effortlessly shared through your social networks,\' write Desai and Quagliarello.
