Yesterday, HTC and EVA Airways revealed a special edition of the HTC Butterfly S Android smartphone featuring the popular Hello Kitty cartoon character. The device comes with nine preloaded wallpapers of the cartoon cat and its case features a Hello Kitty logo on its back.

The Butterfly S smartphone features a 5-inch Full HD Gorilla Glass 3 display, a quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 GB of memory, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, HTC BoomSound and comes with Android Jelly Bean with HTC Sense and HTC BlinkFeed.

The embedded rechargeable lithium-polymer battery has a capacity of 3,200 mAh and allows up to 25 hours of talk time and up to 659 hours in standby while connected to a 3G network.

The HTC Butterfly S Hello Kitty edition goes on sale today for $770 on all EVA flight routes and in Chungwa Telecom's stores. Unfortunately, the initial batch consists of only 3,000 units and there is no information regarding availability of this phone outside Taiwan. On the other hand, EVA is already negotiating with HTC for the next model of a Hello Kitty limited edition phone, expected to arrive in a few months.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
