A Verizon App Store?

http://www.bnet.com/blog/technology-...on-google/5477

Verizon (VZ) reportedly has decided to open its own Android app store in competition with Google’s (GOOG) own. The carrier is pushing a number of features that it thinks will be appealing to developers. ..... see link above.

In other words... Verizon is about to be selling Android 2.1/2.2 tablets, which Google does not allow to access the Android Market.

Verizon has to provide some way for them to get apps. Every carrier that sells Android tablets before 3.0 comes out will have to provide some type of app-store other than Google's Market.

There are also independent Android App stores, that do not block non-compliant devices the way that the Google Android Market does. For example:

I really doubt that is what is behind it, but certainly possible. Verizon is more into selling the service/connectivity than hardware so if they can sell more contracts (2 year lockin etc.) then ... maybe they will start offering tablets (with or without phones).
