You may be thinking this is better suited to our pink-clad sister blog, Shiny Shiny, but considering it’s for a good cause (and I’m sure there’s a few readers on Tech Digest wanting to spend the pink pound), I’m going to mention it anyway.
It’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Sony has done the noble thing and jumped on the ‘oooh, let’s give all our gadgets a pink makeover to support the cause’ bandwagon. Three of their products have been given a pink spray-job, firstly the VGN-CR290EAP laptop for $1,369.99, the NWZ-A816PNL Walkman with 4GB of storage, and finally the 8-incher DVP-FX810/P portable DVD player, for $189.99.
Sony aren’t just painting these three products pink and pocketing the money, as they’ll be donating $75, $10 and $10 respectively for each of those gadgets sold, to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I’m simply shocked they haven’t included the PS3 in the pink line-up, heh.
