Verizon Wireless today announced that it plans to debut a handful of new handsets running Qualcomm's Brew MP platform in the coming months. These devices will have a completely updated application store, according to Verizon. The new storefront will feature a redesigned user interface that Verizon claims is easier to use. It allows customers to preview applications before buying, features a new recommendation engine, and claims to have a better discovery process. Verizon points out that the new application storefront for Brew MP handsets will allow developers to offer in-app payments and direct carrier billing to customers' Verizon Wireless accounts. Verizon didn't provide any specifics about these forthcoming handsets. Brew has been the foundation of Verizon's feature phones for almost a decade.

Direct carrier billng for Brew phone apps but not Android?
I hope to Gawd that carrier billed apps never appear where I work. I don't provide support for those apps, so why should I be responsible...
