The Verizon Hub is unstuck in time. It's a 2006 device that's just getting here, now, in 2009, begging the question, "Is it better to be late than never?"
I'm reviewing the somewhat anachronistic Verizon Hub connected phone. Now that I've seen its future—an open platform built on Linux with sleek hardware from this decade, like capacitive touchscreens—it's way more exciting.
An interesting side effect of the anxiety about the decline of the hardline has been these beautiful widget-y desktop phones that do amazing things you always wanted phones to do, like the Verizon Hub here.
