Verizon Hub in the wild on way to February 1 release

Chris Ziegler

Our tipster tells us these bad boys can't be activated just yet, but they'll be available in stores as of February 1 -- and you won't need anything crazy like FiOS to get 'em. The Hub is the evolution of the Verizon One concept first shown at CES two years ago, featuring family-friendly features like a digital corkboard, scheduler, photo frame functionality, and integration with Verizon Wireless handsets to fire MMS shots straight to the screen. In a way, you can think of it as the watered-down realization of that awesome videophone in Back To The Future II, but with less teleconferencing and fax capability and way, way less Lea Thompson.
