The water-proof Panasonic Eluga DL1 drops by, check it out

The Panasonic Eluga DL1 lays claim to be among the thinnest of Android smartphones out there and it couples it with being IP57 certified meaning it can swim in a meter of water for as long as an hour and it’s also dust-proof as well.

Apart from being ultra durable and slender, it offers a dual-core 1 GHz processor, an 8 MP camera and a 4.3″ 540 x 960 display among other things.

We’ve prepared an unboxing and user interface demo video of the Gingerbread-running Panasonic Eluga, which you can check out below.

The Eluga DL1 is protected on the molecular level against fluids meaning it does away with additional external padding and comes in a clean and elegant slender design.

What we don’t understand is the awkward placing of the lock/unlock button and volume rocker. They are so far back that they’re practically placed on the back panel.

The Eluga marks Panasonic’s return to the international heavy-weight Android market and is already available throughout Europe but we’re yet to see what kind of an impact it will have on the market.
