The Panasonic Z800 is the company's first attempt at a 3G phone. Physically similar in looks the X700 Smartphone, this is a fairly conventional looking clamshell design at first glance, and it's hard to tell from the Z800's compact dimensions that this is a 3G phone at all.
Measuring 97x49x26mm and weighing 115 grams, it's a bit larger and heavier than a typical high-end clamshell, but compared with other 3G phones, it's quite small, even smaller than the LG U8120. Inside is a fairly standard 176x220 pixel TFT display in 65,000 colours, with a 64x96 pixel 56,000 colours STN sub-display.
The primary camera is a useful 1.3 megapixels with autofocus, and added to that is a 110k pixel secondary camera for making video calls. Also, the Panasonic Z800 comes with miniSD card support so that the internal memory can be expanded, which is convenient for capturing and recording stills and video clips. Audio playback is in stereo, although Panasonic have not said what media formats the Z800 supports.
In addition to being a 3G UMTS handset, the Z800 also supports tri-band GSM and GPRS when roaming out of a 3G area. Connectivity to a PC or other devices is possible via Bluetooth, infra-red or USB 2.0 connections.
