Cisco 'Flip' arrives in the Middle East Both Flip models can capture HD quality video and can be purchased from stores in the region in November
By  Jason Saundalkar Published  October 28, 2010

Cisco has launched its ‘Flip Video' camcorders in the Middle East. The debut saw the introduction of the ‘Flip Ultra' and the ‘Flip Mino HD'.

The products were launched in Dubai and Jonathan Kaplan, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Cisco Consumer Products said, "The Middle East is a key market for Cisco Consumer Products. Flip's shoot-and-share capabilities are an ideal way for its youthful and growing internet population to share experiences and stay in touch. We are confident that the Flip will prove to be a popular lifestyle accessory for consumers across the region."

The Flip products are said to ‘put the power of video into consumers' pockets, enabling them to instantly capture and easily share personal video anywhere, at any time'.

The Flip MinoHD is available in two forms; a one hour camcorder and a two hour camcorder. Both versions of the MinoHD feature built-in image stabilisation. The one hour MinoHD retails for an end user price of US $190 and US $245 respectively. The Flip Ultra HD on the other can capture up to two hours of HD quality video, features a two-inch LCD screen and retails for an end user price of US $218. All Flip models are expected to become available at retail outlets across the Middle East in November.

Does anyone know which stores actually have the flip here in Dubai?

It has only taken Cisco about four years to launch in the Middle East. It's nice to see them putting us at the top of their priorities. And yes, I have been able to buy Flip in retailers for two years now anyway. At least there are some people out there who care about customers in the Gulf.
