Creative has announced the launch of the Vado Pocket Video Cam, a pocket palm sized camcorder aimed at the YouTube crowd.

As leaked on the Internet earlier in the month, the new model, which will not be a re-skin of the flip camcorder as previously thought, will feature a built-in USB socket so you can connect to a PC and upload videos straight to sites such as YouTube or Photobucket.

The Creative Vado, will weigh 90g and come with 2GB of built-in memory, a rechargeable battery and 2-inch colour LCD screen.

However don't expect it to record in high definition. Like the Flip, the Creative Vado will only record 640 x 480 VGA resolution.

Available in silver or hot pink in the new model has yet to get a price in the UK.
