Dump the mobile

Ever wished you could just throw that bloody mobile phone away? Well, guess what? Now, you can, thanks to Hop-On Wireless’ disposable cell phone.

The inexpensive Hop-On $30 cell phone comes with 60 minutes of prepaid calling time and features a simple two-button operation with voice dialing. When the minutes are used up, it can be recycled or simply discarded!

The phone currently operates in the GSM, CDMA, and TDMA protocols, and measures just 2.25 inches wide, 4.25 inches high, and 0.40 inches thick. It features a simple two-button (CALL / END) operation and employs automated voice-recognition technology to make number entry easy and mistake proof. The phone features an internal antenna , and a compact earbud / microphone jack for hands-free use.

The Hop-On cell phone is recyclable too, so there’s no need to feel bad about buying one! It’s developers say that when the phone is ready to meet its maker, its plastic case will just biodegrade.

Hop-On say that the new phone is ideal for teens, seniors, travellers, or anyone on the go who wants the convenience and security of a cell phone, without the ‘burden and hassle of a conventional cellular commitment’.
