Panasonic to launch more Android devices

Posted by – November 27, 2011

Panasonic is designing their own ARM Cortex-A9 processor at 1.4Ghz that can be used for Google TV type set-top-boxes. Here’s a video interview with Dr. Masaitsu Nakajima, General Manager of Panasonic’s Processor Core Technology, talking about their ARM Cortex-A9 for set-top-boxes:

As is said at the end of the video, Panasonic has plans for using ARM Powered Android in Tablets, and they probably also have plans for ARM Powered Android Smartphones, and I also expect Panasonic to use Android in some of their upcoming Camcorders, such as the Sanyo HD1000-type-design, with a 1-click Android functionality to upload the videos directly to YouTube over WiFi, with 1-click live stream to online live streaming systems like Ustream.tv and Justin.tv. I expect Panasonic to include Android in Photo cameras, and in their HDTVs using the ARM Powered Google TV platform. Look forward to major Panasonic branded Android devices news at CES, Mobile World Congress and following.
