Verizon Issuing Update to Droid Incredible Next Week, Adding V CAST Apps
We just received official word from Verizon that the carrier will be issuing an update next week to the Droid Incredible. Among the features included in the release is the addition of the V CAST Apps storefront. Verizon promised to deliver the store to Android earlier in the year, and this is the beginning. One of the benefits of the app portal is the ability to add the purchases to your monthly bill. A nice alternative to the Google Checkout system for those on Big Red. Keep an eye on verizonwireless.com/droidincrediblesupport for more information.
We still have two reservations about carrier-specific stores. First, what happens when a user decides to switch carriers? The other, somewhat related problem we see is the potential for exclusive apps from developers. What if Verizon, or any other provider, decides to dangle a money carrot in front of the next “Angry Birds” in order to lock them in?
Look for the V CAST Apps store to also hit the Droid, Droid X, Samsung Fascinate, and their upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab.
