Any device that is about to hit the market will first need to go through the paces over at the good people at the FCC, and with the Panasonic Eluga Power, things are no different as well. Having picked up certification which equals to collective nods of approval from the FCC, the Panasonic Eluga Power is now ready to be launched Stateside, although it remains to be seen whether there are retailers as well as mobile carriers who are willing to work out an agreement with Panasonic before rolling out this particular puppy.
The Panasonic Eluga Power was first unveiled to the masses back in February earlier this year at Mobile World Congress which was held in Barcelona, Spain, where it came with a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor as well as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich underneath its hood. Back then, it was deemed to be the only smartphone that supported quadband GSM and 2100/900MHz UMTS connectivity, but it seems that time has helped some folks at Panasonic change their minds, as FCC documentation show additional 3G support for the 850MHz spectrum.
