Flip rumored to get a Wi-Fi enabled model in 2010
Flip will reportedly release a new USB camcorder with built-in Wi-Fi functionality early next year, thanks to Cisco, which bought Flip maker Pure Digital earlier this year. While this is not official, it should allow the ultraportable camcorder to upload videos directly to video-hosting sites over private and public Wi-Fi networks. The new Flip will purportedly also have a large screen that would slide out of the way to grant access to the record and menu buttons.
The screen isn't described as touch-capable and is likely simple to keep costs down. Pricing or an exact shipping date remain unknown, but the former should be higher than the current flagship offering's $230 price tag, while the device should hit stores in the first half of next year.
