Panasonic Lumix Phone 101p – Joining Softbank’s stable

Softbank just keeps tacking on more Androids to its fall/winter line-up. Yesterday we told you about their Dell Streak Pro 101DL, and now we bring you news of the Lumix Phone 101p. This phone, manufactured by Panasonic, is meant to really combine a phone and digital camera, more so then just adding a camera to a phone. From the picture it looks like they succeeded. That’s a 13.2MP CMOS Lumix sensor with “Mobile Venus Engine.” Of course, it’s a solid phone as well. Check out these specs:

  • Android 2.3
  • 4-inch QHD LCD screen with 960×540 resolution
  • waterproof body (IPX5/7)
  • TI OMAP4430 dual-core CPU (1GHz)
  • compatible with SoftBank’s “Ultra Speed” high-speed data communication service (max. 21Mbps)
  • microSDHC card slot
  • IEEE802.11b/g/n Wifi
  • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
  • infrared connection
  • e-wallet function
  • digital TV tuner
  • W-CDMA, GSM
  • size: 64×123×9.8mm weight: 128g

No word yet on pricing or the possibility of international sale. Did I mention it also comes in pink.

They don’t get any thinner than this folks. This new NEC smartphone called the NEC MEDIAS N-04C, the successor to last years N-04B flip phone, is only 7.7mm think! It’ll have Android 2.2 and NFC capabilities as well, making this a fairly full-featured smartphone indeed.

This device looks to be launching this Thursday on Feb 24th with Avalanche of NTT DoCoMo, with which we don’t have pricing at the moment. So if you love tight acid wash jeans, maybe this is the device for you.
