The new Verizon Hub is revolutionizing the way people use their land lines at home with a fancy 7 inch touchscreen, VOIP connectivity, downloads widgets, and even syncs with Outlook, but do people really need all this with a land line? Hardwick's got the answer.
What You Need To Know
Very easy to use, perfect for a family that is not "plugged in" with tech
Touch screen is very responsive and has plenty of room at 7 inches
Interface is well-designed and the display looks great
It feels a little plasticy, but overall, the design is well-done
Widgets work beautifully and V-Cast media has tons of channels
You can import all of your Verizon contacts and call or text them from your land line
You can get real-time traffic updates, locate the fam using GPS, and use it as a digital photo frame
No internet browsing is a bummer and there could be more widgets
Call quality is great, and you can use the hub itself as a speaker phone
The biggest drawback is if you're relying onthis as your only phone and the internet goes down, it's almost completely useless.
Seems a tad pricey at $200 but if you're a Verizon customer, it could be very useful what with the snyching, plus the design is chic and well done.
