HP Announces 1080p Pocket Camcorder HP V5020U

HP (Hewlett-Packard) released latest Pocket sized Camcorder HP V5020u. This new HP V5020u offers full 1080p HD recording up to 1920×1080 resolution with electronic image stabilisation via a built-in gyroscopic sensor that prevents image blur caused by camcorder movements.
