Panasonic Eluga available for just €229

Deal of the Day: Wait, Panasonic makes Android phones?

Indeed, Panasonic makes Android phones, although there is a good chance you missed the Eluga, even if you are into tech.

Panasonic has been an Android player in the Japanese market for years and earlier this year it launched the Eluga in Euroland. The phone launched at €400 back in March, but now it can be yours for just €229 in Germany, cash and no contract please. It is available for just over €230 in several other EU markets.


Although it might be a pretty unusual device with a few shortcomings, it is definitely a bargain. The Eluga is powered by a dual-core OMAP 4430 processor clocked at 1GHz and it comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It features a 4.3-inch 960x540 OLED screen, 8-megapixel camera and NFC, all tucked away in a sleek 7.8mm body. It weighs just 103g and it is water proof, you can dunk it in a pitcher of beer and still call the cab to take you home, or to work.

Downsides include a smallish 1150mAh battery, no microSD slot and Gingerbread, although Panasonic promised to deliver an ICS update. When? We have no idea.
