HOP-ON Unveils Wi-Fi Mobile Phone



Personal Tech Pipeline

HOP-ON has announced a mobile phone that makes calls via Wi-Fi rather than over a mobile phone network.

The HOP1502 Wi-Fi IP handset has all the features and functionality of a VoIP terminal adapter but has the advantage of enabling users to talk from any available public or private Wi-Fi access point.

Hop-on's Wi-Fi handset technology is based on the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). Service providers can offer high-value call features, such as three-way calling, call waiting, call forwarding and more based on the capabilities of their call servers.

The HOP1502 also enables voice processes, including comfort noise generation, voice activity detection, and echo cancellation, as well as IP protocol features such as Real-Time Transfer Protocol (RTP), Session Description Protocol, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Virtual SIM (VSIM).

"Hop-on believes that the features and price point of the HOP1502 Wi-Fi IP handset will be challenging to the Industry," said Samuel Demissie, President of Hop-on. "Wi-Fi phones have not yet been deployed in quantity by carriers due to security challenges such as fraud, theft of call information, passwords and the lack of 911 Emergency Service." In response to this, Hop-on working together with industry leading security partners, has developed a total solution package for carriers and hotspot owners, which enables seamless authentication and billing enablement for the carrier. Utilizing the Virtual SIM (VSIM) patented software technology, which replicates the same benefits of GSM/CDMA security and authentication in Wi-Fi phones, Hop-on has now substantially reduced the security and billing challenges faced by carriers.

Well, Microsoft has "unfolded" its "Origami" ultra-mobile PC platform Thursday. It turned out to be a full-featured PC smaller than a tablet but bigger than a PDA. Are you impressed?
Yes! I want one!
Sort of. We'll see.
No! It's too big for a pocket and too small for real computing. What's the point?
