    Does anyone know?

    The reason I ask is that a friend just told me it is now, Nokia.

    Do you suppose that there are more camera enabled mobile phones in the world
    than there are security cameras.

    Do you suppose that there are more camera enabled mobile phones in the
    Single manufacturer security cameras?

    Well do you suppose that the American Government uses many suppliers ?

    One shouldnt read what dorks from marketing departments write. The rich list
    is only a list of people that are not rich enough not to be on it. Similarly
    ....... I dont think that Nokia is bigger than a whole countries global

    Its all just mindless marketing aimed at fooling the willing.

    or some global camera store franchise.
    You did ask "seller" and not "manufacturer"

    Actually Ebay doesn't sell cameras, they facilitate third parties selling
    Stop being a smart arse ;)

    I guess it depends on what you mean by that. If you mean, literally,
    "who sells the largest number of devices capable of producing a
    photograph", then maybe it would be Nokia... I dont konw. But if you
    mean "who has the largest share in the camera market" I doubt it would
    be Nokia. I don't think most people that buy a Nokia phone with a camera
    attached because they want a camera (I could be wrong here, too, of
    course). Most people would buy those phones because they want a phone,
    and it happens to also have a camera attached.

    i doubt it would be nokia, considering canon or nikon have probably sold
    hundreds of millions of camera units over their lifetimes. so potentially
    10% or so of the worlds population will probably not have bought a camera
    phone yet, much less 10% of the world buying NOKIA camera phones. perhaps in
    a few years.
