I'm pretty sure it could.
I'm weary of saying it though since, perhaps some devices constrain more than others.
I'd say, give it a shot though just to see if it can on the device(s) you want it to do it on.
Most smart phones have pretty full fledged browsers these days, so I can't see there would be a problem.
None the less, just gave it ago on my N900, and file uploaded no trouble.
I believe that the browsing a phone like iphone or andriod is locked unless you are using a native app.

I'd say yes, the reason being is that I know the facebook mobile site has the option to select a file on your mobile and upload it. This is a device-independant site and is used just like any other site. Whether native APEX functionality could be used or whether you would have to code something a bit more fancy is anyone's guess, but from a technical point of view, yes, you can upload images from a mobile device through a website. Some mobiles may vary - mine is only basic though and it works fine. I guess it depends on the manufacturer, OS, browser etc.
I doubt you could automate it, I'd think you'd first have to take the picture then go to the apex page and select the file from there.
Having said that, it's easy enough to throw an apex page togther that takes a file upload and saves it to the database - give it a go! :)
I can confirm that native APEX upload functionality does work with the Intermec CK3 device using the standard edition of Internet Explorer available on there. I have no other device available to test on however it obviously works on some.
Safari on iOS does not expose the underlying file system through standard <tt><input type="file"...></tt> controls. These elements are always rendered disabled on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

iPhone restricting free development and software usage? Surely not?!
