Verizon pulling touch screen home phone


NEW YORK (WKOW) -- Verizon Wireless has stopped selling its Internet-connected home phone after just eight months on the market.

The carrier says it will continue to support phone already purchased.

The "Hub" is an iPhone-like touch screen for home use and retailed for around $150 after a $50 rebate and required a two-year, $35 monthly contract that included unlimited calling in the U.S. and unlimited texts to Verizon Wireless phones.

The company introduced the Hub in February to compete in the home phone market.
