While Panasonic might be pulling out of the European market a year after they announced their interest in it, they have not forgotten about their European customers and those who might have given their Android handset, the Eluga, a chance. Originally launched with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it looks like Eluga owners can expect their devices to begin receiving the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update. Granted it’s not Android 4.1 Jelly Bean that we’re sure many were looking forward to, but it’s still better than nothing, right? Oddly enough instead of providing an OTA update, Panasonic has instead opted to put the download in the Google Play store, which means that you will need to navigate on over to download the update. You will need 150MB of SD card space and be running the latest Gingerbread ROM. It’s a little messy and unnecessarily complicated but like we said, better than nothing. Instructions on how to proceed can be found on Panasonic’s website.
