Sony Bloggie Live Camcorder Packs Wi-Fi for Quick and Easy Uploads

One of the big trends at CES 2012 is the addition of Wi-Fi and social networking capabilities to entry and mid-level cameras and camcorders. We think it's a nice step forward and Sony seems to think so too as they've announced the Bloggie Live, which offers the ability to upload to sites like Facebook, YouTube and PlayMemories Online.

The Bloggie Live gives you 1080p Full HD video and can take 12.8 megapixel stills - a bit more than we're used to seeing from pocket camcorder. It sports a stereo microphone and a 3" capacitive touchscreen.

Sony also points out that the Bloggie Live plays nice with personal Wi-Fi hotspots and is teaming with Verizon to help promote the pairing. If you pick up a Verizon Jetpack Mobile Hotspot and a Bloggie Live you'll get a $50 debit card.

The Bloggie Live is available now for preorder on Amazon at a price of $249. Sony says to expect it later this month.
