|Hop-On Inc, a leading developer of mobile gambling technology, has announced that it could experience tremendous gains following the announcement by two of America’s largest networks, AT&T and Verizon, that they will opened their networks to phone and mobile device manufacturers.|
California-based Hop-On also develops and markets wireless phones and accessories for emerging markets and is best known for developing the world's first disposable cell phone.
'This is huge news for us,' said Peter Michaels, President for Hop-On.
'Now we can go after Verizon and AT&T customers because they are opening their network. This allows Hop-on to sell new models of GSM and CDMA technologies to US and European market subscribers as potential customers.”
“We are probably one of the most open networks in the world not just in the United States,” said Randall Stephenson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for AT&T.
“We have thousands of people developing into our architecture today. All of the handsets we sell are Java-equipped. If you want to buy a handset on our network without a contract, fine. Just pay retail price for the handset. So, I would suggest to you we feel like we're a very open network and I think you'll see that continue to open up.”
