Mobile Games and Apps Store announced by Verizon

Let's face it, Verizon's Get-it-Now service is somewhat outdated, as its been around for almost 5 year, since the introduction of the LG VX8000. Then last year Verizon introduced Dashboard, which has different categories for news, entertainment, and games, but was only available on a select number phones. Now, at CTIA 2009, comes an announcement that Verizon will launch a Mobile Web Games and Apps Store, which customers can access directly through their phone's WAP or HTML browser. The new Mobile Web Games and Apps Store uses graphics, an easy-to-navigate menu, and keyword search to guide customers to the wide variety of titles and tools. Once you select a game, such as “Tetris” and “Guitar Hero World Tour,” you can then preview and sample it before purchasing.
Remember, that unless you have the $15/month VCast Pack you will be charged $1.99 per MB for any game that is downloaded.

Hey guys guess what!!! Verizon has already had this for years! Its called Get It Now, which has been available for years on most phones! This is nothing new, the only difference is you can access it from the Mobile Web now and it looks a little more flashy since they show pictures of games. But hey as long as it has the word "App" in there people are going to go nuts because they act like everyone is following after the iPhone.

I really dont see how VZW is trying to copy apple when it says it right there in the article. "They have had Get It Now for 5 Years." From what I've seen GIN (Now Media Center) is basically a VZW application store exclusive to VZW customers for 5 years to get different application for business, email, games, ringtones and much more. Looks to like Apple is really the one who copied VZW since I didnt see ANY application stores let alone any phones from apple 5 years ago!!! All there doing with this new service is expanding the way to get the applications and downloads.
