Hub deskphone close to being unwrapped at Verizon Wireless

Hub deskphone close to being unwrapped at Verizon Wireless
Ok, it is not a cellphone, but it is offered for sale on the Verizon Wireless web site and reports have this device already at the stores, waiting for the ok from the big wigs at corporate. We are talking about the new Verizon Hub and as the name suggests, it is designed to be a deskphone that you use as your main communication and information device inside the home. Hence, the Hub moniker. Clever. It has a nice screen where you can go online, leave virtual reminders, and connect with your Verizon Wireless cellphone. A quick perusal of Big Red's web site shows many accessories for the Hub already for sale like a router, different colored face plates that you can change depending on your mood (black, tan and white are the colors initially available), a wall charger, stylus and an Ethernet cable. The web site shows the device priced at $79.99 with a new two year contract. Are you planning on hot footing it down to Verizon to pick up one of these when they go on sale?
