Verizon giveth app ease for consumers and taketh it away

But just when you think that Verizon has stopped checking its wallet every 5 minutes, the other shoe drops. Non VZW app stores, like RIM's App World and Microsoft's Windows Mobile Marketplace, will not be loaded and come on the appropriate handset out of the box. In other words, if you buy a BlackBerry and want to check out App World, you will have to download the store onto the phone. Not a major problem to be sure, but just another unnecessary step that could be easily avoided. Also, developers will have to apply twice if they want inclusion on VZW's store. July 28th will be when we should hear more during the Verizon Developer Community Conference.

Ah maybe you need to get glasses, there are no misspellings in the blog, also big deal maybe people dont want to have these app stores on there phone so actually it gives the person the option to have it instead of having to delete them.

I believe they have links to download the apps, that seems reasonable to me. It just allows the new owner to choose what's installed instead of receiving a phone with 12k programs installed that just take up space. As for the spelling correction, PhoneArena does occasionally update they're posts and may have fixed the issues he was mentioning.

this is the most retarded article Phone Arena has ever posted....Blackberry is a manufacturer, why would we have any sort of lean on what they pre load to the phone...Booo, I think phone arena articles should have the author posted with it so we can ban them from poting.
