The Verizon Hub is a media phone available from Verizon Wireless. It features a 7 inch LCD screen at 16-bit color. The hub can sync the user's calendar, contact, maps, traffic, and weather reports.[2] The Verizon Hub does not require the owner to have Verizon Fios. [3] The hub connects to a wireless network and features a wireless handset and speakerphone. The hub allows users to send text and photo messages, but only to other Verizon Wireless phones. Because the device utilizes voice over internet protocol (VoIP) technology, users can also set the hub to forward calls to another phone number if there is a power or internet outage.[4] The device also requires users to watch video advertisements before utilizing such features as the traffic application, despite a monthly subscription fee of $35.[5]
