Three-ounce Flip Video “Mino” debuts today

Will camcorders soon be the size of USB memory sticks?

Pure Digital is getting closer with the latest version of its hit Flip Video series, the three-ounce “Mino” that’s debuting today.

The $179.99 camera has 2 gigabytes of memory and the trademark flip-out USB plug and built-in software for direct uploading to sites like AOL, YouTube and now MySpace (just don’t forget the privacy lesson that Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan taught everyone Monday.).
Yet it’s 40 percent smaller than the previous “Ultra” model. I’ll bet you’ll see a million of these at colleges next fall.
More stats:
Bit Rate: Auto adaptive bitrate with an average of 4.0Mbps
Frame Rate: Constant 30 fps
Frame Size: Full VGA (640 x 480)
File format: Advanced Profile MPEG4 AVI
