Hello Kitty seems to be a huge deal all over the world, more so in Japan where it originated from, so much so that Japan carrier, Softbank, decided to get Hello Kitty up to date with its very own Android device, making it the first Hello Kitty to be run on the Android platform.
In terms of design, Softbank has referred to it as being discreet, and we guess what they meant was that it wasn’t plastered all over with huge Hello Kitty drawings, which we’re assuming would be great for those who are older and still a fan of the brand, but at the same time want to avoid splashy, colorful images.
Like most phones in Japan, it comes in a clamshell design and features a 3.4” display with an 854×480 resolution. It also features a camera with a whopping 16.1MP sensor that Softbank is claiming shoots in HD, along with a microSD card for memory expansion as well as your usual phone features like Bluetooth, Infrared, WiFi, One Seg TV tuner and best of all, it will be running on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3.
As with most themed phones, it will come with several exclusive Hello Kitty goodies such as wallpapers, screensavers, ringtones and apps. The device, also known as the Softbank 007SH KT, will be available come early September 2011 but unfortunately will be available only in Japan.
