Japan is a weird place when it comes to smartphones. On the streets of this smartphone-obsessed country, you'll find the oddest phones from manufacturers you've never heard of. Softbank, a Japanese cell phone provider, has just released a Hello Kitty Android phone targeted explicitly at young women. The adorable cartoon kitty everyone loves to hate is imprinted all over this bright pink colored phone. Looks like a colorful piece of junk for 13 year old girls, right? Wrong!
Thought that flip phones were a thing of the past? Think again because this Hello Kitty brings the flip phone design back from the dead and fully equipped with Android OS 2.3. And most surprisingly the phone comes with 16MP camera with 1200x720 HD film recording. Holy crap! To top things off, the phone is fully waterproof so girls can drop their phone down the sink/toilet with confidence while putting on their make-up.
Obviously, it wouldn't be a Hello Kitty phone if it didn't come with a Hello Kitty clock, menus, calculator, icons etc. This phone comes with enough Hello Kitty-themed stuff to give you a sensory knock-out. To the chagrin of most sane parents, this phone is bound to be a hit among teenage girls across the world. Thankfully, everyone outside of Japan can take a sigh of relief: this phone isn't going on sale outside of the island country.
