    i think engadget really tried to make verizon a bad guy in this. i mean look at some of the facts, RIM is verizons biggest partner in this, Jim Balsillie was a big speaker at the verizon depeloper conference today and started out saying he was always a supporter of the style of app store verizon is undertaking. Also, this undertaking prompted rim to release new developer tools (although i cant say if they had panned on it already or not). Verizon is also releasing api's and sdk's for more incorporated apps upon their network.

    verizons policys for app approval (at max 14 days) and a guarenteed 70% profit for the developers i can see alot of good coming from this app store, not that i dont think rims wont improve, i just think it if anything, verizons will be a nice resource for new apps. they also will have a webpage storefront as rim is adding in its new release.

    a big thing about this store however is that it supports many operating systems, as microsoft and palm are talking partnerships much like RIM's as well as the regular "vcast" phones will have apps in the store.

    you have to remember these arent "verizon" apps anymore they are developer apps just like any other app store.

    Yeah all the articles I had seen up until this week didn't make any mention that RIM had any involvement in this.

    its really good look at where apps are going or at least where the companies want them to go and the new things they are being allowed to access and change

    Its really no different than apples appstore, someone just needs to develop a jailbreak program and offer an alternative such as Cydia and it won't be an issue.
