Verizon Hub Bites the Dust

What an inglorious end to the Verizon Hub, which Verizon Wireless promoted as the greatest VoIP phone ever. Sure it was sexy, and sure it was gadgety - doubling as a Web tablet and digital phone frame, but apparently users just weren't buying. Not even a year after Verizon Wireless launched the Hub they have killed it.

Verizon Wireless said Sept. 30 it was discontinuing sales for its Verizon Hub. The Hub retailed for $199 and required a $34.99 monthly fee. Too high a price if you ask me. What they should have done is sold it for $50, but lock customers into a 2-year contract or something to offset the costs of this phone device. If they terminate early, then you charge them full-price. Verizon Wireless should know this pricing model from their cellphone plans. But who am I to give financial lessons?

RIP Verizon Hub, we barely knew you...
