Toshiba to sell Hello Kitty Regza LCD TV

It’s not the first Hello Kitty TV out there, but this new Toshiba TV is perhaps the one with the most discreet design. Announced [JP] today, the Hello Kitty 19A800KT is a 19-inch LCD TV that sports the cartoon cat on both the device itself and the remote controller. But that’s not all.

In addition, a Hello Kitty will pop up on the screen every time you mute the TV or change channels (see picture below). Technically, we have an HD TV (1,366×768 resolution) from Toshiba’s REGZA line with 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 2x3W speakers and 2 HDMI ports.

The Hello Kitty TV will go on sale in Japan on February 5 for $700. Needless to say, the device is Japan-only at this point.
