Verizon Ruins Android Marketplace

nacturation (646836) writes "Verizon is gearing up to launch its own app store for Android phones. This app store, called V CAST Apps, is completely separate from Android’s existing Market for apps. In other words, it’s Verizon kicking their partner Google in the man region. The idea of Android is supposed to be an OS ecosystem that works across a range of carriers. In the U.S., Apple isn’t doing this, Android is. And that gives the carriers less power. The problem is that Verizon is now using Android’s openness to ruin that approach."
