Hello Kitty photo frame is almost too cute to be true


We blogged about a number of particularly cute digital photo frames in the past, but this Hello Kitty model beats them all. Announced in Japan by Sanrio [JP] today (Sanrio is the corporation behind the cartoon cat), the device goes on sale in Nippon on May 31. There will be two variations.

The photo frame has a 7-inch screen (resolution: 480×340) and a built-in speaker, comes with a cute remote control and supports the following media formats: JPEG, MP3, WMA, MPEG-1, and MPEG-2. Users can put up pictures via USB or by inserting CF/SD/SDHC/MMC cards or a memory stick. The frame has 6MB of internal memory.


People interested in the Hello Kitty frame (and living outside Japan) might want to contact specialized online shops like the Japan Trend Shop, Gizmine, Geek Stuff 4 U or Rinkya. The Japanese street price is $180.
