Though YouTube's mobile position is pretty healthy, it faces more competition in this space than it does in the PC realm. The competition is especially fierce when it comes to sharing videos taken on camera phones, a market where startups Socialcam and Viddy are rapidly gaining users. AppData's latest figures suggest Socialcam, in particular, might be emerging as YouTube's top mobile rival. That, in turn, could spur M&A interest from Google (GOOG).
