Panasonic's Lumix camera brand has enjoyed success after success in recent years, but the Japanese are looking to take it to places with the upcoming Lumix Phone. Currently the only evidence of its existence is a teaser site on the company's Japanese website, but the folks at Engadget managed to translate what little details exist.
With a 13.2-megapixel CMOS sensor, the Lumix Phone probably has more MPs than it really needs, but a 3.3-inch LCD and 146-gram body sound impressive. Dimensions are 116mm tall, 52mm wide, and 17.7mm thick, which will likely make it a chunky device - by contrast, the iPhone 4 is 9.3mm thick.
That's about as much as we know now, but more details are promised for 5th October, and given Panasonic's photography prowess we're expecting good things.
