Panasonic's Hybrid Phone Camera with Leica Lens


Did you know that Panasonic makes Android phones?  The company recently unveiled a hybrid gadget that combines Android phone and high performance camera featuring 1-inch sensor and Leica Lens.

This is definitely a territory that's been dominated by a few companies such as Samsung and Nokia, and perhaps Apple in certain existence.

Samsung has developed a compact camera that runs on Android (NX300M) - without phone feature, and also a number of Galaxy phones featuring large censor cameras.

Panasonic CM1 was unveiled with standout features such as 1-inch sensor and Leica lens.  The company has been on a run producing many market leading compact cameras wants to test the water in the phone market.  The general Android phone market has already been heavily saturated with many tech giants, and the only way to get a slice of that fierce market is to come up with a new kind of product.

The Panasonic CM1 will be initially sold in Germany and France for an estimate price of $1,170.  That's probably not going to attract too many buyers at that price point.

This bulky looking gadget weights in at 204g and measures 21mm thick.  It really does look more like a camera than a smartphone at a  first glance.  The company is surely marketing this thing as camera with phone feature rather than a phone with a nice camera.

Other than the styling it's also evident by seeing a vast array of manual and physical controls that are only found it high-end compacts and SLRs.
