Sanrio has this ability to make just about anything look desirable, even something as dull as a tablet. Just slap on some Hello Kitty graphics and it’ll sell like hotcakes (there’s even a Hello Kitty Run that takes place annually at the end of the year). But it’s not surprising, seeing how this little anthropomorphic cat has won the hearts of many around the world. We aiM for Pride (WMP), a brand of Hong Kong-based E-Huge Technology Limited that specialises in producing affordable innovative products for a wide range of target audiences, has recently released a Sanrio-themed tablet, the first in their Character Series. It also marks E-Huge Technology Limited’s first device launch in Singapore. The 10.1-inch tablet comes with a pastel pink Hello Kitty Pigo keyboard, which doubles up as a cover and a stand for the device. Apart from being an attractive piece of technology for Hello Kitty fans of all ages, it’s quite the companion if you decide to get some work done on it. It’s powered by the Intel® Atom™ Z3735F processor, a 2GB DDR RAM and runs on Microsoft’s latest operating system, Windows 10. It even has a micro USB port and a microSD slot for additional memory space; definitely useful if you have large-sized files that you don’t want to store on the tablet itself. Also, what would a Hello Kitty-themed device be without a series of limited edition Hello Kitty wallpapers made specially for the tablet, along with unique Hello Kitty desktop icons?

Grace 10 Light Hello Kitty Limited Edition, $379. Available at BEST Denki (comes with a complimentary Microsoft Wireless Mouse 1850).
