Flip Video, a subsidiary of Cisco, has today announced its second-gen Flip MinoHD pocket camcorder.
The successor to the original MinoHD retains the same name but adds a few new features. Firstly, the second generation device feature a "sleek new design" that's slightly rounder at the edges. That re-style also includes more responsive touch-sensitive buttons, and HDMI output for playback on big-screen HD displays.
Although the MinoHD's camera - capable of shooting video at 1,280x720 - remains unchanged, users can now capture up to two hours of recorded footage, made possible by 8GB of built-in memory. That's double the amount found in the previous device.
Continuing the more-is-better trend, the all-new MinoHD also features a larger 2in transflective screen, offering a 960x240 resolution. Rounding it all off is a new version of the pre-loaded FlipShare software - it now allows users to upload captured video directly to popular social-networking sites such as YouTube, Facebook and MySpace.
The second-gen MinoHD will be available by the end of the month for U.S. customers, priced at $229. That's $30 more than the original. UK pricing and availability is yet to be announced.
