Hello Kitty is slowly, cutely, and cunningly infiltrating nearly every aspect
of the technological realm, and yet we just keep succumbing to its overwhelming (albeit deceiving
) innocent looks. While Hello Kitty phones
certainly aren't new
, the cuteness has seemingly made the jump to Skype
, and while little is known aside from the manufacturer (Parfectel), hardcore Kitty fans probably won't care anyway. Sporting the token pink packaging and a typically untrustworthy "Plug and Play" label, the adorable handheld is accompanied a Skype software disc and feel good quotes. Curiously enough, the phone is slated to hit 7-Eleven
stores throughout Hong Kong and Japan this week, and will run you just HK$128 ($17) -- if you outrun the fanboys (and girls), that is.
