Panasonic has launched a new line of mobile phones and tablets under the "Eluga" brand in Japan and Europe. The phones can use their RFID chips to interact with the company's appliances. The company is attempting to re-establish itself abroad in mobile phones after previously pulling out of the international market in 2005.
The phones can also interact wirelessly with its TVs and digital recorder, streaming shows and sending photos via a home network.
