Sanrio, SoftBank and Sharp have teamed-up to create a new Miss Kitty handset, ‘droid powered and only in Pink: http://bit.ly/nWZ5hH
Fans of Sanrio’s popular kitty will be thrilled. SoftBank has announced [JPN] the availability of a new Hello Kitty-endorsed smartphone which is produced by Sharp, powered by Android and slated to be launched in September.
According to SoftBank, the new Hello Kitty smartphone, which is based off Sharp’s clamshell 007SH smartphone, will feature support for a variety of standard features such as My Wallet, as well as wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and WiFi. That being said, the Hello Kitty variant of the 007SH, which goes by the model name 007SH KT (we are guessing KT stands for ‘Kitty’), will feature radios that support both the GSM and CDMA network systems, so there is a slim chance that the 007SH KT might eventually see the light of day outside of Japan.
SoftBank has not provided any information about the processor and amount of internal flash memory present on the 007SH KT smartphone, although it has revealed that the smartphone will be preloaded with version 2.3 of the Android operating system (aka Gingerbread), and that its 3.4-inch LCD display is capable of delivering a maximum resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. However, the real deal about the 007SH KT has got to be the image of the popular cat without a mouth adorning the handset’s front, along with what appears to be a built-in camera which is reportedly capable of capturing stills at the maximum resolution of 16 megapixels, if the machine translation is to be believed.
