Ever wondered how it would be like if Panasonic went into the mobile phone industry? Well, wonder no more because the company recently showed off its first ever smartphone - the Panasonic Eluga. Displayed at the Panasonic Convention 2012 in Hamburg, the Eluga is a 4.3" device that features an OLED display, a slim profile of only 7.8mm, runs on a 1GHz dual-core OMAP 4430 processor and will ship with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread on board which is upgradeable to ICS.

At the back, the Eluga will come with an 8MP camera with auto-focus and image stabilizer and right beneath the back cover is a 1,150 mAh battery that brags up to 240 minutes of talk time. It'll also be equipped with NFC on board. Like how Samsung allows its mobile devices to be linked to its range of TVs, the Eluga can push videos and websites to Panasonic Vera TVs using the Viera Smart 2.0 application.

But those are not the interesting part of the phone, sure it's slim and light, and the specs are able to compete with current high-end Android smartphones, what makes Panasonic different from the others is how it's water- and dust-proof. Pocket-lint recently had a hands-on on the device showing off how the device can be submerged into water.
