Flip Slide HD

There's been some leaks about a new Flip camera, the Flip Slide HD. The details are a bit sketchy, but it appears to have a bigger screen (that slides out to reveal recording controls), it may have Wi-Fi, and it may be limited to 720p.

I'm hoping I'm wrong about the 720p. On the one hand, with these small cameras, it's debatable that 1080p really improves things much, but on the other it's nice to pretend that you have the option.

One more down-side. The $279 price point has me wondering. I'm not sure I'd pay that to get a bigger screen on a camera like that. Save the bucks and get the regular Flip UltraHD. Maybe.
