Panasonic reveals new waterproof Android smartphone for Europe

Panasonic has revealed its new smartphone for the European market. It follows the company’s announcement in December that it was working towards the launch of a dustproof and waterproof Europe-focussed smartphone in March 2012.

The new Panasonic ELUGA - the name comes from ELegant User-oriented GAteway - is an Android smartphone that meets IP57 for dust and water resistance. It’s just 7.8mm deep and has a 4.3-inch 960x540 pixel screen. There’ll be built-in NFC, an 8 megapixel camera and the ability to ‘throw’ content from the phone to compatible Panasonic televisions. The device has a 1GHz dual-core processor and will launch with Android v2.3.5, offering an upgrade to v4.0 later in the Spring.

Panasonic aims to sell 1.5 million Eluga smartphones in Europe this year.
