Verizon Hub So Much More Than A Terminal

Verizon’s new “HUB” device (pictured below) is starting to get some wings.  Specifically, Verizon has inked a deal with Time Inc. so that “Verizon Hub users can now view short-form videos from brands like People.com®, TIME.com®, and RealSimple.com® from Time Inc. brands by simply touching the screen on the Verizon Hub.”

Verizon is positioning the HUB as a every-data terminal, rather than just a femtocell.

Very, very smart.
