Rumor: Panasonic to withdraw (again) from European mobile market

by: AdrianOctober 26, 2012
Panasonic certainly started out its new mobile European adventure with some bold goals, but things didn’t go down as the Japanese hoped. With just two pretty average high-end phones, which had trouble being released when they were still moderately attractive, it couldn’t have been any other way, but instead of trying to be better, Panasonic seems to have abandoned the fight altogether.

Apple & Samsung dominate: Japan’s electronics market becoming harder to survive in

by: nathanOctober 1, 2012
Innovation is a tough thing. In the electronics market, it's pretty unforgiving if you can't do it. Just ask Sony, Panasonic, and Sharp, once kings of the U.S and Japanese markets. But today, things are different as Apple and Samsung continue to undercut each other in the court and the showroom.

Panasonic Toughpad A1 fights its way through the FCC, to be finally released soon

by: AdrianJune 5, 2012

Usually, when a technology manufacturer unveils a gadget and bothers with any kind of marketing campaign, you can expect the product to be made available for sale in a matter of weeks or months. Moreover, when video teasers pop up, you can almost be sure that you’ll see the device start shipping very soon.

That, unfortunately, was not the case with Panasonic’s Toughpad A1, a 10-inch ruggedized tablet unveiled way back in November 2011, but left to be forgotten ever since. The “fearless” Toughpad was teased in a very cool YouTube video clip back in the day, but for some reason we haven’t heard a thing about it ever since.

And right when we were starting to lose [...]

Panasonic Eluga Power UK release delayed, ETA is mid-summer

by: AdrianMay 25, 2012

While the Panasonic Eluga has been made available for a short while in Europe, the company’s 2nd Android-based smartphone, the Eluga Power is keeping tech users waiting, thereby decreasing its chances to become successful.

Initially planned to hit the UK back in April, the smartphone (or is it a phablet?) will not start shipping for at least a month more. Clove, the British retailer that put the 5-inch beast up for pre-order in March, has not officially announced the reasons behind the delay. Also, there’s no word on whether people who’ve pre-ordered the phone will be allowed to cancel their orders and get a full refund.

The guys at [...]

Panasonic Eluga starts selling in the UK, only £369 for the unlocked version

by: AdrianApril 26, 2012

If you thought that Panasonic was kidding when it announced some time ago that it intends to take Europe by storm with its new Eluga and Eluga Power smartphones, you thought wrong, boys and girls!

Less than a month after the official Japan release and just a couple of days after popping up for sale in Germany, the Eluga has started selling in the UK, with several other European markets expected to follow suite within a week or so. The smartphone is, for the time being, available for all you British blokes out there in an unlocked version, from Expansys. The model, without any carrier or network restrictions, retails for £369.99. That’s around €460, or $610, which you [...]

WiGig technology to reach smartphones and tablets in the near future

by: Mike AndriciMarch 27, 2012

If you ever wondered where the IT industry will go from Wi-Fi, the answer (at least a part of it) is WiGig, a new technology that allows for wireless data transfer rates of up to 7 Gbps, an impressive 10 times faster than 802.11n Wi-Fi. However, due to the fact that these high speeds are obtained by using the 60GHz band, the range of action is drastically lowered to no more than a few meters, not to mention the signal’s inability to pass through walls. Despite this disadvantages, however, WiGig remains a great way to transfer/stream files between devices.

In addition, judging by the fact that founding WiGig Alliance members include companies such as Intel, AMD, Cisco, [...]

Panasonic Eluga available in Japan on March 29th, Europe in April

by: Danic FilipMarch 22, 2012

It seems like Panasonic decided to step things up and make the Panasonic Eluga available in Japan a month ahead of the scheduled European launch. There are different theories as to why Panasonic decided to reschedule (seemingly out of the blue) the launch of the Eluga, but it’s certain that the phone will hit the stores in Japan on March 26 via NTT Docomo.

For Panasonic, the assumed objective of the Eluga is to make a difference on the unique Japanese phone market, by moving away from the look and feel of most competing phones. As a company representative said, Panasonic is “trying to offer a great experience free from the bells and whistles found on phones for [...]

Can Panasonic Be a Comeback Kid with the Eluga & Eluga Power?

by: GeneFebruary 28, 2012

It was just a few days ago when Panasonic announced its intention to stage a major comeback in the mobile market with the introduction of the Eluga smartphone, a water-proof and dust-proof 4.3-inch smartphone that will be headed for Europe next month. Just to feed our passion for something new here at the Android Authority headquarters, we were really hoping to see the device in action at the MWC this week. Well, just like an answered prayer, the slender-looking Eluga was displayed today at the MWC.

Judging from the hands-on, it appears that the [...]

Panasonic Returns; Targets Europe Launch Next Year

by: Christine TorralbaDecember 12, 2011

After its unplanned silence for almost 6 years, Panasonic has returned with a kick! With its return, plans of re-launching a new breed of mobile phones are being brewed for Europe. According to this Japanese manufacturer, their very first ‘global’ smartphone is expected to be launched next year. The target date for the release of this new handset is in March 2012 in Europe before being released in the US, China, and in other Asian countries.

When asked about its features, the only thing they can affirm now is a 4.3-inch OLED dustproof and waterproof screen. With regards to its other specifications, the company is being mum and not disclosing any further information. [...]
