By CAROLYN SCHUK for VOXILLA.COM Sales of Packet8's broadband videophone service reveal that the sophisticated device has a surprisingly down-to-earth market. According to Packet8's Director of Communications, Joan Citelli, the largest group of subscribers to the service are grandparents who want to see out-of-town grandchildren. "It's truly the next best thing to being there," Citelli says. Packet8's VideoPhone for Broadband sells for $250 and the monthly service is $29.95 for unlimited US and Canadian calls. D-Link also sells videophones.
