Revealed back at MWC, the Panasonic Eluga – a tough, IP57-certified droid with a slender waistline – has landed in Europe. However, to be more specific, the smartphone is only available in Germany market at the moment, though it will make its debut in UK markets on April 24th (from Expansys that says the handset costs £364.99 or approx €442), and should make its way to other European locales in due time, according to reports.
Packing a 4.3-inch IPS qHD display at 960 x 540 resolution, and 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, Panasonic Eluga is made extremely well and it’s water resistant and dust resistant. However, it’s shipping with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, though an Ice Cream Sandwich update should arrive soon.
Folks interested in the Eluga can find it for as low as €399 depending on where they shop. While Amazon.de asks €419,85 for the Eluga, you can buy it for less (€398,90) from GetGoods – another German retailer. As well as Guenstiger.de has it slightly cheaper at €370.
