Panasonic wants to visit Europe (again), show off its smartphone wares

Although we've still seen none of Panasonic's Android family outside of Japan, a new rumor suggests that the company is seeking out a PR agency to help big up its latest smartphone offerings across the Old World, starting next year. Panasonic is keeping schtum on the rumor, although it's already announced plans to head out overseas on its smartphone ship some time in 2012. PR Week reports that the brief includes the UK and five other European countries. Wafer-thin, water-resistant phones may have already landed, but we're not going to say no to more psychedelic handsets.
