Hop-on's HOP2001 brings dual-mode action to Windows Mobile

Chris Ziegler

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 (though EV-DO doesn't appear to be supported), a 3 megapixel autofocus cam, 256MB of ROM and 128MB of RAM, integrated GPS, microSD expansion, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, and Windows Mobile 6 (never mind the fact that the shoddy rendering shows Windows Mobile 5, we suppose). Hop-on proudly proclaims the HOP2001 to be "AT&T / Verizon ready," though we'll hold off on proclaiming this one of the most feature-packed WinMo handsets on the market until we see some actual units in use. Call us jaded!
