It's pretty much impossible to take any press release from Hop-on seriously, and its latest one is a perfect example of why. In essence, it points out that the GSM-based HOP1890 ChitterChatter will operate on AT&T's multi-billion dollar 3G network, but from what we can tell, it won't actually b

Sure, we've seen a lot of product announcements from Hop-on accompanied by janky product renders over the years -- but we've never seen an actual Hop-on phone, so we're a little skeptical of the company's promise this morning to release an Android phone at CES this year.

So Hop-On apparently got tired of showing rendered vaporware after rendered vaporware and finally came to the table with some real products, but there's a little problem: one of them, the HOP1803, is a dead ringer for Nokia's XpressMusic 5310. We figure Hop-On probably just went to their friendly l

Don't worry if you've never heard of 'em, but Hop-On's got a new $10 disposable cellphone that goes by the name of HOP1800. Dual-band on 850/1900 or 900/1800, featuring totally rad vibrating or polyphonic MIDI ringing, Hop-On's billing this one as the \"anti-iPhone\"; we're not exactly sure what make

We've heard a lot of talk from Hop-on, makers of all those cheap cellphones that never seem to go anywhere, but the company may have bitten off a little more than it can chew with its latest trademark registration filings for \"YahooPhone\" and \"YPhone.\" Yep, that's right -- those names bring to mind

So what's more creative, a disposable cellphone or a dual-mode GSM / CDMA WinMo smartphone? Tough call, but it's a very real question seeing how Hop-on apparently makes both. This here is the HOP2001, a phone with a spec sheet that sounds just a little too good to be true: triband HSDPA 3.6, CDMA (

Hoping to capitalize on Verizon's new come one, come all attitude, Hop-on's getting back into the game with its disposable CDMA handset, a concept it has been throwing around on and off for the past several years. Dubbed \"The Graffiti,\" the phone (which isn't the least bit wasteful thanks to a recy

It's been a hot minute since we've heard from Hop-on, but the firm is hitting us up with a new GPS phone dubbed HOP1883. Granted, it's currently listed as \"in production,\" and the only product shots we're seeing are mere renderings, but nevertheless, this tri-band GSM handset purportedly sports a c
