We take an in-depth look at the new Hub from Verizon. See how it integrates with Verizon's wireless services.

We spent a few moments speaking to Verizon about its new Hub. The Hub is meant to replace your home phone line. It uses VoIP technology to connect telephone calls through the Internet. But it's way more than just a telephone.

The Hub can integrate with your existing Verizon Wireless service, including the ability to send and receive text messages and multimedia messages. It can also be used to check traffic, map directions, and send directions to Verizon Wireless phones that use the VZ Navigator service. It will also allow parents and families to keep track of one another via Verizon's Chaperone service.

The Hub will also replace your white pages and yellow pages, as it has an active directory for looking up numbers and addresses. You can also watch V CAST content on the Hub, get regular weather updates, manage your calendar, buy movie tickets are a lot more.

Verizon said that it will be expanding the capabilities of the Hub over time, and can automatically push updates to it through the Internet.

Here is some video of the most poignant features that tie into your cellular service:
