NHN Japan's LINE, a messenger app for smartphone, has now 45 million users in the world. NHN recently announced the upgrade LINE to social networking services and will add "Home" and "Timeline" features soon. It seems quite exciting. But before switching to a social networking platform, a more exciting feature was launched in LINE. That is a new stamp of Hello Kitty, queen of Japan's Kawaii characters! It costs on 170 JPY (approx. 1.50 USD). I must buy it now!
There are 40 patterns of Hello Kitty stamps available. There are many stamps of Hello Kitty doing sports, like Kendo, Japanese martial arts of fencing, baseball, and running. Wow, I've never seen such an active Hello Kitty before! Interesting.
Hello Kitty has been so popular everywhere in the world since 90's and rose its popularity amongst celebrities, such as Kiss and Lady Gaga. Now, Hello Kitty is on one of the world most popular smartphone apps and will increase its prominence even more!
