Reading up on this range... there are quite a few models... I suspect the picture above is the 'basic' one - as there's a slide-out keyboard version, and one without any camera controls (just three thin buttons at the bottom) - which would suggest Gingerbread...
An interesting range, initial impressions are no optical zoom either (pointless leaving that out when it looks so much like a camera..)
Dual core, great resolution, etc. but if it's still just point and snap - then no real benefit apart from xenon...
Oh well, maybe version 2...
KEITAI (aka Japanese Phones)is the coolest mobile phone and up to date in my opinion, especially in Japan!
why do I answer that because I also have this phone in my residence (Osaka)!
Keitai average large sail design with folding and sliding, all waterproof cell phone, digital TV service has a special japanese, Felica (NFC service created by SONY), it has become a standard feature that must have all of Keitai in Japan since the first !
About time we got a different looking phone..
This is definitely a camera with phone functionality...
My only concerns...
There was another one (unheard of manufacturer) that did a camera/phone - but the software was WELL out of date and of course, sluggish due to low specs...
My only hope is that at least this comes out with Gingerbread.. I wouldn't expect to see ICS on something like this... but hopefully a responsive screen, etc. dual core would be nice (I doubt it though)
Size - it looks looooong maybe it's the pad at the bottom...
Is there optical zoom?
If so... then this is one hell of a phone!
Storage space.. as long as it has good internal storage space for apps / games
Personally, I don't think it's ugly at all..
One side is clearly camera - which looks nice enough...
The phone side does look a bit busy..
But if it can finally replace a compact camera - think of the possibilities!!!
Gosh this phone sent me back to the start of the smartphones generations those old ugly devices! please don't sell this this in Europe no need to do that.
LOVE the design! This phone stands out from everyone else! When all phones look like copycats, this is the sexiest showoff. I think this phone will target those who uses the camera function more than other apps. I'm IN for this phone!
panasonic never knowed to make an european design. they make the same childish stupid japanese design. in europe this manga cartoons-design doesn't work like in japan
The UGLIEST Phone i have ever seen. The designer should be fired.
