Wi-Fi Enabled Cisco Flip Camcorder To Launch By Christmas

You may no longer need to connect your Flip camcorder to the computer to transfer pictures. Cisco has revealed its plans to introduce a new Wi-Fi enabled version of the popular Flip camcorder that will allow users to wirelessly transfer pictures and videos.

While the exact launch date is not known as yet, we hear that the company is aiming at a holiday season launch. Ideally that should happen in the early part of the holiday season since that will give users a chance to buy the new camcorder before they set off on their vacations.

We are not sure about other features that the new Cisco Flip camcorder may come with. However, as Ubergizmo points out, a little bit of on-the-spot video editing features would be pretty handy.

“Well, it’s a Flip camcorder, and there’s a sliding element to it — amazing deduction skills, we know. Perhaps Cisco has something up its sleeve soon?”
