Pinoy Techies, after teasing our minds a few days back, Panasonic has finally unveiled its much-awaited Lumix phone. The handset, which is of the slider breed, is being shown off in the Ceatec exhibit in Japan. And it’s not what we’re expecting it to be. In terms of awesomeness, we mean. It doesn’t have the oomph of its cam brother. It just looks… bland. Meh. But yeah, it does look like both a camera and a mobile phone, depending on what side you’re looking at.
Too bad no one could really caress the Panasonic Lumix phone, as it’s “guarded” by a plexiglass. Engadget was able to score a video of the presentation, though. Watch it.

So the Lumix phone’s got this nifty feature for organizing and sharing photos on the Web and a mobile Venus Engine that lets you take pictures with a maximum resolution of 1,536 × 2,048 pixels. Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity and DLNA support are all accounted for. We couldn’t figure out what its other specs are, but we already know that the phone has a 3.3-inch touch screen with a resolution of 854 × 480 as well as a a 13-megapixel CMOS sensor.
Oh well. We’re praying, nay expecting, that this phone is a capable shooter even if it looks like a crappy, old mobile. After all, it’s using the Lumix name.
