Flip Ultra and UltraHD hit the UK

The second generation of Pure Digital's Flip Ultra line has been announced for the UK with the new Flip Ultra and Flip UltraHD going on sale from 29 June.

Featuring 2 hours of recording time, a high-res 2-inch screen, and battery recharging through the built-in USB arm, the new models follow the same cheap-and-easy theme as previous incarnations but get more memory and a bigger screen, as well as HD capture in the higher-end model.

The Flip Ultra will be available in black, white, yellow and pink, can shoot at a web-friendly resolution of 640 x 480, gets 4GB built-in memory and offers 2x digital zoom, for what that's worth.

The UltraHD gets the same zoom, is available in a more grown-up black and white (with a chrome trim) and can shoot 1280 x 720 resolution video recorded to 8GB internal memory and offers widescreen output to a TV via HDMI.

The Flip Ultra will be £129.99 and the UltraHD will go on sale for £159.99, both due to be available from Amazon, Play.com, Dixons, Currys.digital and PC World.
