The leaked Mino camcorder from Flip is now official, and from the looks of it, it's still got the stripped-down appeal of its sibling Video.

New features on the Mino include touch sensitive buttons (as opposed to click) and an increased video bit rate of 4.0 Mbps (doubled from before), giving the user an hour of capture.

What's more, the built-in sharing function will now upload to MySpace, YouTube and AOL. Dimensions are a lithe 3.94" x 1.97" x 0.63".

On the flip side (no pun intended -- well, okay, maybe a little), the camera's resolution is still 640 x 480, and the lens and 2X zoom remain the same.

One change in particular should be noted: AA battery capability has been swapped for a non-user replaceable Li-ion cell, doubling battery life to four hours at the expense of quick-fire, on-the-go replacement. It will take a minimum of two hours to recharge using a new power adapter or three hours plugged into a USB port.

The Mino is available now for $180.
