Slim and Sleek Camcorder Delivers New Design, Double the Memory,
Larger Screen and Direct Uploading to Facebook

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – October 14, 2009 – 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.
