Cisco today launched a new range of Flip video cameras. These new cameras were introduced in two models, the UltraHD and MinoHD. Their pricing ranges from $149.99 to $229.99 and these cameras indicate that Cisco is looking to enter the consumer media and entertainment market. Cisco has been traditionally a networking company with its hardware running the core routers of the Internet. However with the burst of the consumer devices, it seems this is a right move for Cisco.
