take your Flip Mino out for a spin are its sleek looks and its small form factor. The Mino comes in two colors, white and black and it's about the size of an Apple
IPhone. It fits comfortably in your pocket and allows you take the Mino with you anywhere, ensuring that you don't miss those important moments when you need to
film something. With its small size, it packs a 1.5" LCD display for viewing and editing your videos. Its 2 GB of flash memory allows for an hour of VGA recorded video
