Verizon Plans To Launch App Store For Hub Phone

Posted by : admin
Filed under : General

Verizon has announced that they are planning to build an app store for their Hub phone.  The Verizon Hub will already have some web add-ons built-in such as weather and traffic.  Third party developers will be invited in the near future.

The Hub has been selling since February 1 as a home phone and Verizon is looking for ways to keep growing the landline business since many people are starting to disconnect to save money due to the weak economy.  The Hub is targeted towards families that are looking for a phone with limited Internet services to place on kitchen counters.  To access the applications, Verizon will not require consumers to be Verizon customers.

“We’re in the process of getting rid of that restriction,” stated Verizon product manager John Gravel. “Why would you limit anyone from using this?”

The Hub store will be launched later this year.  Verizon believes that Internet radio would be very useful for a phone like this.  On future Hub devices, Verizon is planning to make it multi-touch.
