Verizon opens up

Filed under: Tech — aproposofnothing @ 11:24 am

Verizon will be opening it’s network in 2008 to “Any Apps, Any Device”. They will be publishing technical standards so you can “bring your own” to their network. So I guess you can get one of those cool Korean phones you read about and activate in on Verizon. It also sounds like someone could create a non-phone device that could use the network also. Imagine an adapter that allows your PSP to use the EVDO network.

Verizon Wireless today announced that it will provide customers the option to use, on its nationwide wireless network, wireless devices, software and applications not offered by the company. Verizon Wireless plans to have this new choice available to customers throughout the country by the end of 2008.
