[Nokia Phone with Kitty]This is hilarious. Purring Kitty - The Purring Kitty transforms Nokia mobile phones into discrete, vibrating massagers.. I'd rather not think of exactly how it's used and, well, the state of the phone after use.

Walsh, the 25-year-old co-founder of what he described as a "pretty well-known" mobile-phone game publisher, which he didn't want associated with the Purring Kitty spinoff, conducted most of his market research at his pub.

"The reaction has been pretty good," Walsh said. "There's a clear 50/50 split. Half the girls know immediately what it's about. The other half look at the kitty and say, 'Aw, that's cute, but why is it vibrating?' Then the penny drops."
