New Bloggie Touch Does Full HD Recording, 12.8 Megapixel Stills

Sony's upgrading its chunky little Bloggie personal camcorder into a full-blown touchscreen device, with the Bloggie Touch—a sleek little option for recording Full HD video and capturing 12.8 megapixel still shots.

The biggest change to new Bloggie is the addition of a 3" touchscreen, which has allowed Sony to ditch the black plastic of the last-gen Bloggie in favour of a minimalist new look. There's an HDMI out for HD connectivity, 4x digital zoom, plus Sony's put in 8GB of internal memory for storage—which it says is enough for four hours of 720p video.

Bloggie Touch will be available in pink and black, but you're much more likely to get the silver one with its "brushed aluminium finish" when it arrives in November. [Sony EU]
