The Water-resistant Panasonic Eluga is now available in Europe


The Panasonic Eluga is now available unlocked via Expansys. Back in February right around Mobile World Congress time we posted an article about this water-resistant device. Stating that it was a very sleek, eye pleasing phone, but it left many visitors to the booth less than impressed. The Eluga is powered by a TI OMAP 4430 CPU. Specs also including a 4.3-inch qHD display, 1Gb RAM, 8Gb internal storage, and Gingerbread 2.3.5, with plans to upgrade to ICS.

This GSM device may not appeal to those state-side as it only runs on 2100MHz and 900MHz bands, which would only get you a decent 3G signal. As mentioned, it can be purchased unlocked at Expansys, at the price of £369 or $590 in the US. If you do purchase the Panasonic Eluga, let us know your thoughts on it in the comments.
