Hop-on announces CDMA2000 disposable phone
Hop-on.com, Inc. is planning to show its next generation Model 1905 CDMA disposable phone at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). 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 many languages and the phone has a rechargeable, lithium ion battery. The company expects a digital talk time of 3 hours (with standard battery) and standby time of 10 days.

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.

Hop-on's Model 1905 is a replacement to its original IS-95 disposable handset that was introduced in late 2002. However, in contrast to the Company's original product offering (that also included 60 minutes of airtime), this next generation disposable phone will initially be sold only to carriers and Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO's) for them to add airtime and resell to consumers.
