Default New Pioneer High Definition Camcorder (concept camera?)

It seems that Pioneer wants to join in on the Flip-style camera market. Their camera is simply called "Pioneer High Definition Camcorder". What makes this camera quite different from other similar cameras are it's pivoting lens, touchscreen lcd and can be used by left or right cuz of the shape. No info on specs, price and release date. "If" it will be released, because to me it only looks a like a concept camera, that Pioneer is experimenting with.

haha that pivoting lens looks a bit suspect if you know what I mean

Seriously though, with that kind of lens I am trying to see what advantage this form factor would have over a Pistol Grip Design. The idea of these flip video type devices is that they are slim. This design looks a bit unwieldy to me!

if it does exists as something more than just a concept, then the design is obvious... just like taking video from a cellphone
