So I Guess Flip Won’t be Fighting Back

Last week I wondered what Flip might do to fight against the inevitable release of an iPod Touch with a camera. Apparently I was too late with my recommendations.

Gizmodo has the details on the new upgraded Flip. A little bigger screen, slightly better software and built in upload to Myspace and Facebook. Oh yeah and an aluminum case and double the memory.

No wifi, and no ability to edit the video on the camera. There are the two biggest features the Flip needed IMO.

Oh well, maybe Apple will milk iPhone sales long enough for Flip to figure out they need an overhaul not a few minor tweaks.

    When I picked a camera, I went with the Kodak Z series, they kill the flip in features and price. Fantastic video, removable memory, removable battery….$159 for native 720p, now they have a 1080p one.

    Jason, but you're so much cooler than me. I don't know that I'm worthy to own the same camera as you :)

    I think Flip is right to focus on what it does. It can't be an iPod Touch, so why try? Concentrating on quality of video, lens quality and ease of use in a compact package is what Flip should focus on.

    A cook isn't looking for a corkscrew, scissors and a toothpick when they want to cut a piece of meat. A knife doesn't have to be “Swiss Army” to do a great job of cutting.

    Tottaly agree and that's the bet Flip has to make. But I'm not talking
    about adding music, knives or anything else except for easy of use and
    ability to upload my videos. If trends have shown us anything it's
    that people value ease over quality.
