The Flip Ultra SD Video Cam vs. the New Nano

Now that the new iPod Nano is here, we're all elated at the fact that it features a larger, 2.2-inch LCD display and a built-in FM radio tuner, but the best part has got to be the included video camera. Being the owner of a Flip Video Camera — which is pocket-sized and very user friendly — I was tempted to see if the video quality on the new Nano is comparable to the Flip. The NewTeeVee crew decided to put both to the test in a side-by-side comparison.

As you'll see, the Flip quality is much better than the Nano, but if you were to compare the Nano to some cell phone video cameras, the Nano would win. Considering the fact that the 8GB Nano (which records up to eight hours of footage) only costs $149, it's not too shabby for a camera that you can easily put in your purse or back pocket — and hey, it even plays music!
