Not out yet, Panasonic rumored to return to smartphone fray

After bowing out of the smartphone game back in September 2013, Panasonic is reportedly set to introduce a new handset in 2014. Details are light at this stage, but the phone is said to feature a 5-inch display and offer some degree of rugged protection. Likely shock resistant, it sounds like the type of device that would best be suited for construction sites and places that literally take users out into the field. According to Asahi Shimbun Digital (Japan), Panasonic has already started working with carriers to bring the device to the United States.

Mobile World Congress gets started at the end of February; Panasonic could introduce this smartphone at the event.
