Cisco Subnet writes about Cisco’s upcoming Flip Slide HD ultra-portable camcorder device.

“The gadget blogosphere is all a-flutter on what’s reported to be the first major redesign of the Flip camcorder since Cisco bought Pure Digital last year for $590 million. A tipster from consumer electronics retailer Best Buy let blog Engadget in on the secret. The new Flip Slide HD will apparently feature a second screen — an angled slide-out for viewing videos, much like a DVD player, according to blog Electronista. It will have 16GB of storage, good for about four hours of video, the blog reports.”

Andrew Nusca writes about a rumour that suggests Apple will bring out a smaller iPad solution next year.

“Apple has scheduled a smaller, five to seven-inch version of its iPad slate tablet computer for launch in the first quarter of 2011, according to a new report. According to Digitimes Research senior analyst Mingchi Kuo – whose accuracy we can’t vouch for, but whose namesake publication often prints Apple rumors before they become reality – ‘upstream component sources’ say a smaller-size Apple iPad will target consumers interested in media consumption (reading), rather than media creation (typing). According to the report, the ‘iPad mini\ (if I may) will be priced at ‘less than $400’ – that’s $399, most likely.”
