I think it is tells you that Kodak have been working to address issues that were noted since the original launch and the are providing upgrades to improve the product.

I've got it and it's a great camera, mine shipped from Amazon a couple of months ago with the latest firmware and for picture quality it beats the Flip Ultra hands down.

Fantastic price for this camera - have some heat :thumbsup:

Mate has one of these bought primarily for recoding concerts, here are his first efforts
