Verizon to offer a new app store running on mobile Java
Mc Adam admitted that his company had been zealously guarding its brand, but he said that Verizon will open up and provide developers with some proprietary information and will allow limited access to Big Red's subscriber database. This would allow a third party app to know if a person stored in a contact list is a Verizon subscriber, for example.
According to a Sun press release, the Verizon Wireless CEO was one of several executives speaking at the keynote speech opening up Sun's annual JavaOne conference and is expected to discuss why his company decided to go with JAVA ME and offer Java based services and application to Verizon customers.
