Verizon’s Hub, the home phone meets MID, got official a few days ago. The device incorporates a touchscreen with what is presumably a VoIP phone, although Verizon fails to make it entirely clear. Families – as Verizon likes to pitch it – can peruse movie trailers, check weather, get directions (and send them to their phone) and view traffic. Additionally, Verizon Wireless customers can sync contacts and calendar information to their Verizon Wireless phones as well as connect applications to the device, such as VZ Navigator and Chaperone.
The Verizon Hub will go on sale on February 1st.
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
