Disposable Phones Could Ship This Week

The Washington Times is running a piece that says disposable phones could go on sale as early as this week. Hop-On is expected to ship first with New Horizons to start shipping next month. Both companies plan to offer phones with some bundle of minutes for about $40. That’s about half what a prepaid starter kit costs. While there maybe some niche uses, I’m skeptical of the value to everyday consumers.
