Hop-on, Inc are into mobile gambling. And judging by their recent press releases, they kind of hit the jackpot in Las Vegas.

20080318 news : 50,000 "pieces" of GSM/CDMA Dual Mode PDA HOP2001 for $ 16 M... Yes, that's $ 320 apiece - I guess there was the heck of a pionneer premium / development fee along with it.

20080410 news : 10,000 "phones" sold as part of test purchases

-
20080418 news : 150,000 "pieces" a day now !

Yet those metrics sound good.

I mean if you are doing the PR for this kind of company.
