Verizon and Google Making Joint Announcement Today

ceo_schmidt_mcadamVerizon and Google are primed to give a webcast today and although the details are scarce, we couldn’t be more excited.  Could we finally see the largest US carrier make their Android announcement?  Will the Sholes get officially unveiled?  We consulted our Magic 8-Ball for answers and were advised that  “sources point to yes”. 


WHO: Verizon Wireless, the nation’s leading wireless provider, and Google™

WHAT: Verizon Wireless and Google will host a webcast today. Speakers include:

  • Lowell McAdam, chief executive officer, Verizon Wireless
  • Eric Schmidt, chairman and chief executive officer, Google

We can’t imagine a webcast involving Verizon and Google CEOs that doesn’t involve Android in some capacity.

We’re going to hold off on posting the URL to the webcast so as not to get anyone in trouble.  We’re waiting for the okay from a few contacts, but if we get the clearance, we’ll share it.

Thanks to Taylor from AndroidAndMe for passing this along to us.

    Verizon may be the largest wireless company in the U.S., but it doesn't have a killer phone. That may be one of the reasons it decided to join forces with Google to create some brand new additions for the Android armada.
