Does take pictures at the same time when taking videos like WB350F model?

 Update to previous post:
Been testing this camera for a couple of days now, even zoomed out to max 21x the pictures are stellar, in camera effects are great, wifi options work flawlessly, 1080p video is crisp and clear. too many great features to list, menu is fast and intuitive.
Just all around Awesomeness.

I was hoping for 60p, but it's actually 30p for HD movies.
Still an excellent Camera, very well constructed, great 21x zoom, etc.

 If you take out score for popularity  (brand name )  this camera beats Sony hx9v

This camera can take 3D shots, 3D panorama shots and HDR shots and high speed movies. And vs others it has also WIFI

this camera does have a built in flash, just read a review and pics of it. its on top right corner if looking at the front. that pops up. so fyi. looks like im going to wait til it comes out and get this bad boy. with flash add another plus, not too many negatives ive seen.
