"Astro Boy" Casio Exilim (Limited Edition)

Casio in Japan today announced [JP] a new limited edition Casio Exilim camera, which was designed to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Astro Boy. The device is technically based on the EXILIM EX-S200 from last year (but it looks much cuter, of course).

Spec-wise, the camera features a 14MP, 1/2.3″ CCD sensor, a 27mm lens with 4x optical zoom, and a 2.7″ 480×320 LCD. For the Astro Boy edition, Casio threw in special icons and frames based on characters appearing in the cult manga/anime series (see below).

Buyers will also get this special pouch:

If you’re interested, you should contact online stores specialized in exporting Japanese gadgets like the Japan Trend Shop or Rinkya soon: the Astro Boy camera will be released this month and is limited to 300 units only (price:$440).
