iRiver×Swarovski×Hello Kitty
Dear Friends,

iRiver have upped the ante on their 2GB Hello Kitty DAP by covering it in Swarovski Crystal and making it limited edition.

The crystals had better be stuck on tight of there’ll be lots of handbags full of stray stones and some patchy looking players.

Most music players wouldn’t really qualify as a fashion accessory, but this one certainly does. But yet at the same time it serves a functional purpose as well.

When it goes on sale on October 30, it will cost about $150, which is quite affordable for a music player.
