woah. The specs mention a "built in speaker". It's almost like it's 2015 all over again ;)
Interesting that it says there are no USB ports. (how will we attach a cellular adapter?) Hopefully those specs aren't correct. (I've seen the specs section on CURRENT devices be wrong before, so that wouldn't surprise me).
We don't know for sure that this is V3 though... This could just be a redesigned V2 hub.

It became unavailable within hours of this original post.  Having said that, this hub and an assortment of V3 devices have been appearing in stores although early.  The recent app and firmware updates are in preparation of these new items.

I saw one of those weird white hubs with red ring at my Lowe’s the other day. Glanced at it; as stated above not sure I’m married enough to Iris to continue my relationship with it all by buying new hub.

I WAS really excited about the prospect of a hub that could verbally let me know what was going on.
Until I just read that there is no migration process... Unfortunately you will have to delete your hub, re-pair all your devices with your new hub, then re-create your rules, scenes, etc...
I have 84 devices, so that's just not a process I want to go through.

Lol.  If I was going to that much trouble, I would probably just experiment with Smartthings, or go back to Wink.  Unfortunately, nobody else has a keypad to use the system as an alarm system.

SmartThings has never provided a method to transition to new hubs and doesn't provide any backup method either.  They are currently selling the 2nd gen, a 3rd gen, the ADT hub, their WiFi mesh system with the hub included, and a add on hub to a NVIDIA device I think, maybe more.  I believe the ADT hub is the only one with monitoring any longer and it is expensive just for the hub and while it supports most if no all the devices the 2 gen hub does, only certain ADT devices will work with the monitoring side of the device.  The SmartThings  landscape provides a lot of options that Iris doesn't with many 3rd party DTHs and SmartApps but most do not work with the 3rd gen hub (yet at least) and I'm not sure about the ADT hub so it is a little confusing what to go with if your starting with SmartThings now.
