[Hop-on announces Europeans are showing strong interest in its "disposable" low-cost GSM cell phone with no LCD screen.]
Irvine, CA -- Hop-on, Inc. announced today that its low end GSM cell phone with no LCD screen is hopping all over the European Markets! Just in the last two weeks of introducing the disposable cell phone, Hop-on has received orders for over 150,000 pieces and more each day.
Peter Michaels, President of Hop-on stated, "We are getting so many inquiries about the 'disposable cell phone' in Europe and the Middle East, we will be hiring additional support to meet the market demands. We will not have any manufacturing issues in the low cost 900/1800 MHz phone utilizing both Texas Instruments chip sets and Infineon chip sets as they are proven technology."
Michaels of Hop-on also stated, "This is our biggest opportunity to actually have Hop-on become a household name in the US and throughout Europe. No one sells a new 10 pounds Sterling GSM cell phone. This is a home run for Hop-on. While we are excited about the interest generated in the European Markets, we don't currently have the resources to market our new disposable cell phone in the United States. This will come in time. We want to focus on the European and Middle East markets and then hire the personnel necessary to do it right in America!"
