I like the BlackBerry App World, but it's always nice to see some friendly competition, right? Talked about since last summer, Verizon Wireless has finally launched their V CAST Apps store on the BlackBerry Storm2. The store will initially be offered on the carrier's BlackBerry smartphones, with additional platform support to come as time progresses. The app store isn't replacing the App World; rather, the two are going to co-exist.
Verizon plans to share 70 percent of revenues with developers and will allow for access to the carrier billing platform, so applications can be charged directly to the wireless bill. Sounds like a deal to me. The only question that remains: Will Verizon's app store gain marketshare in an already crowded market?
