Panasonic Eluga Power earns nod of approval at FCC

Thanks to recent certification from the FCC, the Panasonic Eluga Power has just earned its figurative passport for travel within the United States. We first met the 5-inch behemoth back at Mobile World Congress, which packs a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 and Android 4.0. At the time, it was thought that the smartphone only supported quadband GSM and 2100/900MHz UMTS connectivity. The story has changed a bit, as FCC documents reveal additional 3G support for the 850MHz spectrum. While the Eluga Power's usefulness here in North America is still rather limited, those who'd hoped to import one can now do so with a solid pat on the back from the FCC.
