The HOP1502, Hop-on's $39 WiFi phone

HOP1502 WiFi phone

Hop-on has a history of being a little, um, optimistic in their press releases, but they've just announced a new $39 WiFi phone that'll let you make Voice over IP phone calls from any WiFi hotspot (at least the ones you have unfettered access to). The HOP1502, which it doesn't sound like you can actually buy or anything, looks a lot like an late Ninteties handset and is listed as having a talk time of 3.5 hours.
