Cisco’s new camcorder called the SlideHD has finally gone on sale for a price of $280.  Unlike its predecessors, Cisco had focused on high quality streaming video through which users can flip the camera in any direction and watch videos in HD. This pocket sized camcorder offers the user great usability in terms of the size of the device as it is easily portable.

The SlideHD has the following features:

  • Availability of two models 1.5-inch and 2-inch screens
  • Touch screen interface
  • Flip screen
  • Gyroscopic viewing of the screen
  • 16 GB internal memory
  • Video streaming and recording in HD quality.

From the features itself you might now be wondering what is the actual price of this gadget. Cisco has given this pocket sized camcorder a price tag of $280. It does seem to be an awful lot of money from the camcorder perspective, but being a camcorder that will record in HD quality and with the flip screen, it is worth the price.

Cisco has been more of an enterprise technology provider, precisely for business solutions with regards to video conferencing. Through the SlideHD Cisco does not only seek to target the business customers, but also consumers, that are edging towards the Android market.
