since their released the website, I don't see what's the difference between 500px and Flickr except the latter is more mature and feature rich. in other words: what's their selling point and the reason they became popular?

It's the presentation. Flickr has terrible presentation, with tiny thumbnail views and lots of clutter. As a photographer though, the 900 pixel maximum width imposed at 500px.com is unacceptable. As a programmer, Flickr's api allows all kinds of social analytics that I would hate to give up.

I find the title a bit misleading. Does that mean the new iPhone will have 500 pixels? That's what I thought when I first read it, because I'm not familiar with "500px" the company.

Maybe change the title to reflect the one on the article?

500px is a Canadian startup in Toronto. They been on the front page of hacker news several times. The word order made perfect sense.
