Flip has introduced the second-generation Flip MinoHD camcorder. The new model has a new design, 8GB of storage capacity, a larger 2-inch screen and a HDMI port. The original model with one hour recording is still available for $199, while this new model with enough built-in memory for two hours of 720p HD recording will be available for $229.
The premium Flip MinoHD offers consumers an easy and stylish way to capture and share high-definition (HD) video with a sleek new design, up to two hours of recording time, and a large high-resolution screen. Also introduced today was the latest version of the pre-loaded FlipShare™ software which now offers consumers direct video uploads to Facebook™.
"The original Flip MinoHD has been a hit with the social networking generation because it delivers the perfect combination of sleek design, ease of use, and great video quality," said Jonathan Kaplan, senior vice president and general manager of Cisco's Consumer Products. "Our second generation Flip MinoHD lets users shoot twice as much video, enjoy a bigger screen, and even share their stories directly to Facebook with the latest version of FlipShare."
The all-new Flip MinoHD camcorder offers a stylish new look with brushed metal finish. True to its heritage, the new MinoHD can be personalized with one of thousands of designs or can be custom designed by the user at theflip.com. The sleek device now has a slightly rounder design, responsive touch-sensitive buttons, and a durable brushed metal finish. Along with great new looks, the second generation Flip MinoHD includes double the memory for up to two hours of recording capacity, a bright two-inch transflective screen for no-glare viewing even in direct sunlight, and an HDMI jack for direct input to HD televisions with an HDMI cable. The new Flip MinoHD is priced at $229, while the original Flip MinoHD -- with one hour of recording time —is priced at $199 and the standard Flip Mino sells for $149.
