Hello Kitty

If you're looking for a decidedly entry-level Android handset, have a fetish for all things Hello Kitty, and live in Germany this one's for you. Samsung will be releasing a special Hello Kitty edition of the Galaxy Y in the Fatherland, complete with all the pink trim you could ever ask for. With a special home button, a two-tone pastel pink and white case, and even special wallpapers and ringtones this one is sure to please your tweener daughter, or that creepy middle-aged guy you know.

Unfortunately, there's no spec bump so you're left with a 3-inch screen, 800MHz CPU, and on old version of the software (based on Android 2.3). Clearly, the lure here is the pretty kitty and not the blazing speeds. We'll pass on this one, and wait it out for the Hello Kitty Galaxy Note 2. Be sure to click through and see the battery cover. ^_^

I totally feel a barf coming....

This is one of those times to say "why"?

Why not?

It will be the same price as a shitty pink LG sliding messaging phone, and does two things:

Gets another user on a data plan for the carrier

Gets Google apps and services (and Samsung's apps and services) into another set of hands.

People will buy Hello Kitty phones anyway, they might as well get an Android one. I hope TMNT phones are next!

I think you mean, "Y," AMIRITE?

JTEastwood says:

The answer to why can be found by asking my daughter. "That's so cute daddy, can I have one? "

crxssi says:

LOL- Marketing wins.

Oh, this would be a HUGE hit in Japan and Korea, would it not?

The Disney Android phones are more impressive.

Kidding of course

Jonneh says:

I think it's awesome. I don't want one but I already know at least two others who would.

gregmcph says:

If it was better specced, my daughter would utterly love it.
She's a girly girl, but she still knows what is good and what is crap in tech.

I sense a lawsuit. Didn't Apple invent Hello Kitty as well?

LadyDi says:

Crying laughing

tqmcguire says:

Christ, really? This "Lawsuit is coming. Apple invented..." crap is the new "FIRST!!!"

piizzadude says:

just the color pink

bjs188 says:

This is my next

LadyDi says:

I think it is cute as a collector of HK stuff. I can pass on the phone though. Purple wins over pink all day every day.

Two questions...

1 - Does it have Touchwiz?
2 - But...why?
