The first major new Flip pocket video camera to be released since Cisco bought Pure Digital earlier this year will go on sale in early 2010. Reports indicate that the as-yet unnamed model will feature built-in WiFi capability and a larger screen.

Sources report that a Cisco spokesperson has confirmed the new Flip model will enable videos to be uploaded over public and private WiFi networks, similar to the Eye-Fi wireless memory card or digital cameras like the Samsung DualView. The pocket camcorder will also feature a new, larger display screen that slides to provide access to the record and menu buttons. However, the display will not be a touchscreen.

This could be an important model for the Flip line as it plays catch-up with competitors such as the Kodak Zi8.
