Hop-on 1883 GSM Cell Phone Announced


Hop-on, Inc. will introduce its newest phone, the GSM 1883 model complete with GPS capability, utilizing the latest technology in the most cost-effective manner to ensure widespread acceptance in the consumer market and to generate high sales

Hop-on, Inc., a leading developer and marketer of wireless phones and accessories, has announced today that it will introduce the new 1883 model GSM phone with GPS capabilities to their line of innovative, affordable cellular devices. Hop-on is best known for creating the world’s first disposable cell phone.

The new 1883 model will feature a SiRF StarIII GPS chipset and a slim, modern design. The 1883 has a full-color screen, long battery life, gaming capabilities and a 2.0 megapixel camera for photos and video recording. This cutting-edge technology will appeal to consumers in America, Europe and emerging markets alike, who are looking for a high-quality GPS standard phone.

Hop-on has recently begun focusing on future patents and technologies as well as the ability to provide effective tracking devices, such as the GPS technology available on the 1883 model GSM phone. The 1883 model’s GPS tracking device is a great tool for both children and elderly adults. If a child is lost, a parent can send an SMS message to ping the phone, and instantly be able to locate their child. The same technology can be used to monitor the locations of teenage children, to ensure their safety as they explore newfound freedoms. The 1883’s GPS technology is also helpful for elderly adults, who may experience slip and fall accidents and need assistance at their exact location as pinpointed by the GPS.

“The 1883 offers the latest in GPS technology for a fraction of the cost of similar phones,” says Hop-on’s President, Peter Michaels. “This particular phone has the ability to track its users easily by sending an SMS message to ping the phone to locate the phone’s user anywhere within the carrier’s network.” Michaels adds with a smile, “It will be a great way for me to keep track of my teenage kids!”
