Panasonic Lumix Phone spied in the wild

New blower seen at CEATEC show in Japan…

The Panasonic Lumix Phone was teased by the Japanese giant last week. And while certain specs were handed over, no shots of the device itself were available for us to gawp at. Until now.

Engadget has managed to get some snaps of the new, camera-focused cell. It certainly looks old-school from the front, coming as it does with a slider mechanism and numeric keypad. If anything it looks like a sturdy but unspectacular Walkman phone.

Round the back is where it’s all kicking off though, with a 13.2 megapixel camera and what appears to be an epic, optical zoom. Sadly, Panny is keeping the Lumix phone under lock and key, so no one’s been able to give it a going over and check just what’s what.

Other specs, detailed last week, include a 3.3-inch LCD. The phone tips the scales at 146g and measures a mighty 17.7mm thin. It’s not due out in Japan until early 2011 in black, gold, blue and pink, with a UK release date given nary a mention by Panny staffers. Expect this to be Far East only for some time.
