Speaking of customers, one of Flip’s big selling points has always been its low price point; a dead-simple HD camcorder for less than $200 is hard to beat. However, the new Flip SlideHD costs around $280 for 16GB of memory. Apple announced today that the iPhone 4 will start selling at $199 for 16GB and $299 for 32GB.
I am in full agreement, the new iPhone is going to crush the Flip, why carry two devices when one can do it all? I always wanted a Flip, but HD video recording and editing on my next phone – well that is just ‘the bees knees’ now isn’t it.
