hell kitty iriver Announces New ‘Chococat’ Player

Hello Kitty fans rejoice, iriver recently announced a new MP3 player which is designed to look like the Hello Kitty “chococat”. The player—which iriver Japan says will be targeted more towards adults—features gold accents and an LED nose which will surely make even the most hesitant become fans of the Kitty.

The 4GB player, which weighs in at a paltry 16 grams, features a 10 hour battery life, 4-preset EQ, and a shuffle mode.

iriver says the player will be available December 18th for 7,980 yen ($90). Unfortunately it will only be available in Japan.

Yes, it’s a slow news day. That’s the excuse that will help us sleep tonight anyway.
