Including 8GB of flash memory (up from 4GB) and a 2-inch display (up from 1.5-inches), the 2G MinoHD also comes with a new pre-loaded version of the FlipShare software which now automagically trims and edits your video for direct Facebook, YouTube and MySpace uploads.

The new MinoHD still includes earlier goodies such as the flip-out USB arm, 2x digital zoom, 2 hour battery life, the diminutive dimensions of 4 x 2 x 0.6-inches and now includes an HDMI port for easy video output to an HDTV.

With a choice of the new brushed-metal finish, your own custom design or one of thousands of professionally crafted skins, the new Flip MinoHD is available now direct from Flip Video for $229.99

Flip Video Introduces Next Generation Flip MinoHD
Slim and Sleek Camcorder Delivers New Design, Double the Memory, Larger Screen and Direct Uploading to Facebook
October 14, 2009 — San Francisco, CA
The maker of the acclaimed Flip Video™ family of camcorders — recently acquired by Cisco® – today announced the second generation of its popular Flip MinoHD™ line. 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.

New FlipShare Software
Like all Flip Video camcorders, the new Flip MinoHD includes FlipShare, the pre-loaded software that leads consumers seamlessly through the process of organizing, editing and sharing videos. The new version of FlipShare software, available soon, has been upgraded across the line to include the easiest way to instantly upload video to Facebook, in addition to YouTube™ and MySpace™. The latest FlipShare software will also include a number of new organization tools and user controls, and debuts Magic Movie, a fun feature that automatically trims and arranges a user’s selected video content into their own movie.
