Fans of Sanrio will probably want to ditch their current mobile and get their hands on the Softbank Hello Kitty Android Smartphone.

Smartphones normally take the form of touchscreens; however, the Softbank Hello Kitty Android Smartphone is actually a clamshell model that hasn't been seen in quite some time. Considering the reputation and the styles that Softbank has had in Japan, this is one mobile that won't be a disappointment. It boasts a 3.4-inch display with a 854 x 480 resolution. The camera is an impressive 16.1 megapixels and contains the usual goodies such as a microSD slot, Bluetooth, infrared and Wi-Fi; as its name suggests, it runs on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3. The overall design features a nice violet color with nice pinstripe designs and, of course, Hello Kitty herself.
