  • Cons: No USB Arm, charges via cable. Very low-quality speaker. Lacks external microphone. Subpar still images.

  • Pros: Cool design, lightweight and compact, HDMI connectivity offered alongside AV and USB out, memory expandable via (optional) SD or SDHC cards
  • Cons: Mono microphone and speaker, screen visibility compromised when cropped to ape 16:9 widescreen ratio, no convenient flip out USB arm offered as on some competitors
