Verizon: Only our app store on smartphones
Verizon is up to another dastardly way to make money. This time by limiting where you buy your applications from. GigaOm, VP Partner Management Ryan Hughes said in an interview the Verizon branded app shop will have content for all major platforms under the same roof.
This means that Verizon won't have the BlackBerry app world on it when a customer purchases a BlackBerry. The customer would need to take the time to actually download and install the BlackBerry app world.
