Vonage Pushing Viseon Videophone to Subscribers

Mega cool!  Im going to see if I can find one!  I still wish they had 850 numbers though.. :(

visifone2.jpg imageVonage is pushing their videophone service to their customers this morning, showing off this new all-in-one unit from Viseon. The copy of the email I received doesn't have pricing information, but I can only hope that if Vonage is asking their customers to drop money on new hardware that the prices for the video calls themselves will be effectively the same as voice-only connections.

Will the age of videophones finally be upon us? I still think the idea is nice but cumbersome, although if it is going to be adopted in any numbers to speak of it will have to be cheap, standardized, and easy—all qualities Vonage attributes to its new box. (Thanks, Richard!)

Email body after the jump.
