Its cool as hell, Ill give it that, but this will never work at that price.

agree with you...the price would have to be better. so many people use their cell phones and have done away with their landline.

If you buy a good Panasonic phone from Radio Shack it's around 99.99. For an extra $100 this one will communicate with the rest of your family via txt, pix, and even visual traffic conditions. I know it's a hard sale but ppl thought the same thing of cell phones back in the day!

I agree. I don't see how this can be so appealing when you have to pay for internet AND monthly service on this thing

its $35/mo average landline customer pays like $50 soo. I would say its a modest price

I know it's not totally apples to apples, but the T-Mobile @home thingy is 10 bucks a month and they're not exactly flying out the doors.

I think this thing is awsome, even though only select people will get it. Imagine though you wake up in the morning, go turn on the coffee pot and while doing that you want to know the weather, maybe sports scores, or news, BAM right there. I know a lot of not only consumers, but small business owners that still need a landline for whatever reason w/ unlimited minutes. Plus a lot of parents would rather leave one of these at home for their young kids than a cell phone to get lost or broken, plus you can text message and do chaperone from it

Honestly its really only geared toward small families and/or couples. Hopefully something for businesses will come along... VZW Hub w/ Videophone maybe?
