Verizon Wireless Will Support Android
Replying to: Seems like a desperate move to me by Anxiovert
Pretty soon "the Network" will no longer be a selling point. Verizon has used this as their bread and butter for years and AT&T is catching up with a "network you can trust." Granted it you may not have a reliable or trustworthy network in your area, but in the market where both are equal, how to get new customers in a 100% saturated market. Steal them away from other carriers. Now it may be easy to do now with Sprint/Nextel around but let see how the big dogs do it. Please no iPhone replies as this did very little in port out from Verizon. Customer Service will be pretty even too as policies become more customer friendly with 30 returns and prorated ETF's. Both carries seem to copy one another anyways. So, Verizon wants to take the big step and make it's network open with open handsets from Google too. They are doing what the other carriers haven't yet in order to show they are different, until someone else says they will do the same. Either way... the benefit is to us the consumer. More choices, less control. A multi-billion dollar company with 64 million customer doesn't need to be desperate. If you go by the Numbers like elgee, you would agree too. Verizon can stay the same, AT&T could stay the same if they wanted to but it would be us that would lose.
