Hop-on.com, Inc. today announced that it will exhibit its next generation Model 1905 CDMA disposable phone at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show, which runs from January 6 to 9, 2005 in Las Vegas. This new CDMA2000 version is a tri-mode handset that operates on the 800 MHz (AMPS & CDMA) and 1900 MHz (CDMA) frequencies. It is Hop-on’s lowest cost CDMA handset with the distinguishing characteristic of not having an LCD screen. Instead, Hop-on has built in an audio feedback feature when dialing numbers to ensure error free dialing. The audio feedback is available in any language and the phone has a rechargeable, lithium ion battery. Since there is no LCD screen, this handset is ideal for promotional applications because there is a sizeable area for advertising or co-branding and it can be programmed to playback a customized message along with the phone number. This phone is targeted to CDMA carriers and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO’s) in North America, South America, Asia, Africa and portions of Eastern Europe and Russia.
