The only top-tier phones Verizon carries are BlackBerrys. That’s going to change:
Verizon Wireless and Google plan to co-develop several Android-based
devices that will be pre-loaded with innovative applications
from both parties as well as third-party developers. The family of
Android phones on the Verizon Wireless network will come from
leading handset manufacturers.
Smart move for both. Of the three new mobile platforms — iPhone, WebOS, and Android — Android is the first to land on Verizon. The bottom line is that this is Verizon’s way of announcing that they’ve pulled their head out of their ass regarding handsets.
