Verizon Opens Its Network to Other Phones

Includes Those Manufactured by Hop-on

Hop-on, Inc. (Pink Sheets:HPNN), a leading developer and marketer of wireless phones, patented accessories and the leader of mobile gambling technology, wholly embraced Verizon (NYSE:VZ) Wireless’ announcement that it will allow phone and mobile device manufacturers connection to their network.

Verizon’s announcement came shortly after Google (NSDQ:GOOG) unveiled its plans to release its own Android open mobile platform, as well as its Open Handset Alliance, a group of over 30 companies attempting to develop lower cost, open mobile devices.

These moves come in sharp contrast to the companies’ past strategies of blocking the Electronic Identification Numbers (EIN) of non-approved CDMA phones. Other communication companies likely will follow both Verizon’s and Google’s new open approach. This move will revolutionize the availability and accessibility of technology for consumers.

As one of the only American manufacturers of CDMA phones, Hop-on anticipates an enormous sales boost, as a result of Verizon’s “Any App, Any Device” initiative.

This decision means Hop-on can sell its phones to any customer, without Verizon blocking the EIN numbers. The minimal technical standards for connecting to Verizon’s network will be announced early next year. However, Hop-on is familiar with CDMA standards and its phones are already approved for use on several networks.

Hop-on would also benefit exponentially, as a Pioneer and leading CDMA phone provider, said Hop-on President, Peter Michaels. “Now people will be able to choose from a wider selection of phones that are free of carrier restrictions. “Hop-on’s innovative, cost-effective phones, such as the 1993 model, which costs less than $75, offers stunning and most desired features at a significantly lower price. This makes the Hop on model 1993 the perfect choice for first-time cell phone buyers and the lower-end market.”

“Verizon Wireless’ strategy to open its network is a positive move that could help it generate revenue from devices it doesn’t currently sell, such as Internet tablets, PCs and other portable devices”, said Jack Gold, founder and principal analyst at J. Gold Associates.”

This unprecedented plan could also open the door for non-phone devices, such as gaming systems or cameras to receive cellular access for the first time. This would give an incredible boost to Hop-on’s latest mobile gaming and wagering software, which could be played through Verizon’s customers’ phones.

About Hop-on, Inc.
