Bigger Capacity, Bigger Screen on New Flip Mino HD

Techstination feature for Thursday, October 15, 2009

A new Flip MinoHD. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. Simplicity is what has made the Flip line of video cameras so popular...with over two and a half million sold in just about two years. It also attracted the interest of Cisco Systems which bought the company. And the latest in the line is a new version of the Flip MinoHD. Senior marketing director Simon Fleming-Wood...

" It has a two inch, very bright screen, so a bigger screen than the predecessor. It holds two hours of video instead of one. And it has an HDMI out. The original just had a composite cable. It's a big upgrade. It also comes with the latest version of FlipShare which now includes uploads to Facebook."

Along with YouTube and MySpace. The new premium Flip MinoHD is priced at 229 dollars. It faces increasing competition from Kodak and others...including the new Apple iPod Nano. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
