    There is a ton of news rolling in from MWC today. First up, Engadget got some hands-on time with the Panasonic Eluga which we shared some details on before. Unfortunately, it turns out that the device isn't nearly as robust as previously leaked. While the folks at Engadget had great things to say about its elegant and refined look and feel, they were left unimpressed with the phone's performance. They shared their disappointment that the phone came with a 1GHz dual-core OMAP 4430, and running a heavily skinned version of Android 2.3.5, which made it feel a bit behind. Furthermore, they were also disappointed with the mediocre 1150 mAh battery.

    1150 mAh battery, are they joking? The Droid 1 has a bigger battery than that. So fitting that in the picture, the phone looks like it's low on battery.
