Verizon One

Verizon is showing off the Verizon One, a convergence device that combines a DSL modem, 802.11g router, and a 5.8GHz cordless phone into a single desktop unit—and just one calorie. The idea is more than just reducing clutter. The Verizon One acts as a central interface into all of a customer's voice mail and call management features, including Verizon's new iobi Home services. Depending on how much it costs, it will probably be a colossal failure, but with every phone carrier and cable company trying to bundle all services into one, these sci-fi control panels might finally make a splash.
