Hop-On Claims To Have $10 Mobile Phone

Talk about a no-frills mobile phone. This is truly it–the HOP1800 from Hop-On. The phone has no screen and 14 buttons: the typical number pad, a send key, and an end key. That’s it. Not even SMS. That’s because there is no screen!

The phone is available in both European (GSM 900/1800) and Americas (GSM 850/1900) dual-band configurations. As the graphic says, the price is $10. To whom, though? And is this price even realistic? I don’t think so.
