Video togetherness is yours for $599 plus $24.99 a month for unlimited calls, video messaging and 100 minutes of video storage. Demos available at select malls around the country.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.
