The Hello Kitty Music Player Crystal, made in cooperation with luxury brand Swarovski, I blogged about in October drew the attention of quite a few (mostly female) CrunchGear readers. One of the problems was the price: $150 for a fairly basic music player isn’t cheap. But now Japan-based Mouse Computer, in cooperation with iriver Japan, is offering a similar device. And their so-called Hello Kitty Music Player Premium [JP] is less expensive.
The device comes with 4GB of internal memory (the Swarovski model had just 2GB), which – according to Mouse Computer – should be enough for around 960 songs. It weighs 16g and is sized: 45.2×17.0×35.5mm. You can connect it to your PC (Windows only) via a cute USB cable (pictured above) that’s included in the price. The player supports MP3 and WMA files.
