Panasonic Eluga hits Germany on the way to U.K. launch on April 24th
pixel density of 256 ppi. A dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4430 processor is driving the device which has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage on board. When you purchase this model, you had best be sure that the latter is enough memory for you because there is no microSD port on the phone. On the back of the handset is an 8MP camera that also captures video. Android 2.3.5 is installed although an update to Ice Cream Sandwich is expected this summer. The Panasonic ELUGA also carries support for NFC. The 1150mAh battery seems wimpy and Panasonic says it is good for 12 days of standby and 4 hours of talk time.
Those interested in the Panasonic ELUGA but need more in the way of specs, might want to wait for its higher-end brother. The Panasonic ELUGA power is expected to offer a 5 inch 720p display, launch with Android 4.0 installed and have the power of being driven by a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 processor. This unit will also feature a microSD slot while still offering protection from water and dust. Pre-orders are being taken by overseas retailers like Clove in the U.K., but keep in mind that this is considered a premium device and is priced as such. That means turning over 478.8 GBP, which is approximately $764 USD, for the phone. This model will be launched sometime later this month so you don't have too long to wait.
