Sony paints gadgets pink, donates to breast cancer research

As companies continue to give their products pink makeovers in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sony is joining the fray by introducing a trio of items that all give back. Up first is the 14.1-inch VGN-CR290EAP laptop (starting at $1,369.99), which features a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 200GB of hard drive space, DVD writer, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, integrated X3100 graphics, 2GB of DDR2 RAM and a slew of ports to boot. The 4GB NWZ-A816PNK Walkman ($149.95) boasts a 320 x 240 display, up to 33-hours of battery life (8-hours when playing back videos) and support for MP3, WMA, AAC, MPEG4 and M4V formats. Finally, the 8-inch DVP-FX810/P portable DVD player ($189.99) offers up a swiveling flip-screen and promises around 5.5-hours of life on a full charge. And just so you know, Sony will be donating $75, $10 and $10 (respectively) from the sale of each aforementioned gadget to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Sony!

If anyone says "Oh PR Stunt boohoo get over it" i swear you would have to be the most ignorant person on the planet, the money ACTUALLY goes to breast cancer research and helps people. Breast Cancer isn't a joke, people in families die from it everyday....affecting a lot of people. Appreciate it! Don't hate!

Microsoft just recently released a pink controller for the 360 without any donations of any sort. I would have thought they'd have done the same but Microsoft likes to look out for number 1 I guess.

The more you give. the more will return. Sony is always doing a good thing.
