The cell phone comes home. Verizon Wireless is offering a new product. But it's not something you clip on your belt or slip into a purse.

The Hub combines many of the smart phone features familiar to cell phone users with your home phone. The Hub has a telephone handset that sits in a cradle with a color screen.

From the touch-screen home page, it's a quick leap to a menu with telephone directories, movie previews, or news and traffic on the Verizon Wireless network.

There's also a "Relay" function. It's a high-tech bulletin board that could replace your refrigerator as the home info center. It allows people with Verizon Wireless phones to leave text messages, videos and pictures for the family.

The Hub costs $200 after a $50 rebate, and it requires a two-year, $35 monthly Verizon Wireless contract.
