Panasonic promised and it has delivered – it revealed the Panasonic Lumix phone today. But the news isn’t good (if you live outside of Japan that is) as the phone appeared on the NTT DoCoMo booth at CEATEC, so chances of it dropping into our hands are pretty much nil.
At least now there are photos to gawk at and a video that shows all the stuff we can’t have…
Here are the basic specs. The Panasonic Lumix phone is a slider, it has a 13.2MP camera with a Lumix badge, 3.3” WVGA screen, 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi with DLNA, microSD card slot and measurements of 116 x 52 x 17.7mm, 146g of weight.

It’s no go on optical zoom (like the Altek Leo has), the Panasonic Lumix phone has a digital zoom instead. As for the flash, it looks and sounds like a xenon unit (Google Translate called it “high intensity”, but there’s no official confirmation yet either way.
