We got our hot little mitts on the newest gadget from the folks at Flip video, the Mino .

First impressions? The new touch controls take some getting used to, but the fact that they're backlit will be incredibly handy for folks who want to shoot in dark rooms. The UI has also been given a slight facelift, but still retains its minimalist storage indicator and timer when shooting. Also, a huge step up from its former self is the internal battery that recharges via USB, which should keep you from having to buy AA batteries between shoots.

We've got unboxing photos and side-by-side shots with the (still useful) Flip Video Ultra.
