Verizon Embraces Google's Android

Looks like good news for android developers. Remains to be seen just how committed Verizon is to android but I'm all for a major carrier supporting it!

From http://www.businessweek.com/technology/ ... 429930.htm
In yet another sudden shift, Verizon Wireless plans to support Google's (GOOG) new software platform for cell phones and other mobile devices. Verizon Wireless had been one of several large cellular carriers withholding support from the Android initiative Google launched in early November.

But given the stunning U-turn Verizon Wireless made Nov. 27, announcing plans to allow a broader range of devices and services on its network, Chief Executive Officer Lowell McAdam says it now makes sense to get behind Android. "We're planning on using Android," McAdam tells BusinessWeek. "Android is an enabler of what we do."
"I have no reason to learn this, which is what makes it interesting."
