New GSM Phone 


GSM phone and GPS technology
Hop-on has recently begun focusing on future patents and technologies as well as the ability to provide effective tracking devices, such as the GPS technology available on the 1883 model GSM phone. The 1883 model's GPS tracking device is a great tool for both children and elderly adults. If a child is lost, a parent can send an SMS message to ping the phone, and instantly be able to locate their child. The same technology can be used to monitor the locations of teenage children, to ensure their safety as they explore newfound freedoms. The 1883's GPS technology is also helpful for elderly adults, who may experience slip and fall accidents and need assistance at their exact location as pinpointed by the GPS.

Michaels adds with a smile, "It will be a great way for me to keep track of my teenage kids!"
