Images of the Panasonic Lumix Phone start to surface
The 13.2-megapixel monster was in the flesh, rather, various colored versions of it were found locked behind plexiglass and out of reach at NTT DoCoMo's CEATEC booth. Even though no one was allowed to grasp the phone, it does give us all plenty of indication of what to expect with the final product.
From the looks of it, the slider phone packs a keypad and will be offered in a variety of color arrangements, but based on what can be seen so far, it's hard to fathom where the “folding mechanism” comes into play – which was something mentioned in their press release. Still, we'll have to wait and see whether or not it has the internals and guts to produce photos that can truly outdo the competition.

This look more like a real Digital camera Phone!

Almost perfect! Now just lose that d-pad and use that spot to make the touch screen bigger!

Man, the plastic on Japanese phones always looks like on a toddler's toy, no styling whatsoever. and if you are wondering about the folding mechanism - the screen part rotates until the phone forms the letter T, like many Fujitsu camera phones on Docomo
