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.

The specs look nice but it does look very ugly. Looks like nice brick.
Why do Flip make two models (the MinoHD & UltraHD) that are almost identical? The differences are pretty minor IMO. :confused:

It would be really nice if they added a microSD slot to allow people to expand the capacity. Also, what are Flip Video going to do once all mobile phones do the same as their cameras?
aceuk

If they're the same as the (presumably now defunct) non-HD models, then the Ultra will run off of AA batteries, while the Mino has a built-in pack, charged through USB.
