Verizon has come out with the one phone to rule them all! No, seriously, the "One Phone" from Verizon is designed to have all of your equipment built in so that you need not worry about having a seperate router, modem, phone and hobbit who travels to the land of Mordor. There isn't any VoIP function, which would have been a very nice touch, but it doesn't fall short in the features department. In one box you get a high speed DSL modem, a wireless 802.11g router, and a 5.8GHz cordless telephone with a touchscreen display for accessing news, weather, sports, Verizon's Superpages and the Evil Eye of Sauron. You can even add your own personal photos as a screen saver or background. You'll have to shell out $150.00 for the One Phone, but something tells me if you keep mentioning Vonage and Comcast while you order, they'll cut you a break. Full Specs after the jump (and no more Lord of the Rings jokes, I promise).
