can't seem to find any info searching "Zonk" and "Pong" on Google and it's not here: http://www.pong-story.com/mypongs.htm

Is there any other info on the system somewhere?

It's a pong console, as others pointed out. Its by a company called "Phone Mate".

HAHA, that was great!
I think, what Mister Jrecee is trying to say is that there were many many many clones of these pong systems. I bet it is unclear how many exactly there were worldwide. I would not think it would be that valueable. But a great piece of video game history. they probably were the first affordable video gaming systems.
