  • Verizon: Our Apps Aren't About Taking Over The Phone — It's About "Choice". Puke.

    Verizon: Our Apps Aren't About Taking Over The Phone — It's About "Choice". Puke.

    About a week ago, we noted that Verizon was gearing up to launch its own app store for Android phones. This app store, called V CAST Apps, would be completely separate from Android’s existing Market for apps. In other words, it’s Verizon kicking their partner Google in the man region. Of course, we all knew neither side would spin it that way. And sure enough, today we have… Read More

  • Verizon Is About To Kick Google In The Apps With Its Own Apple-Like App Store

    Verizon Is About To Kick Google In The Apps With Its Own Apple-Like App Store

    Buried a few paragraphs into my post a few days ago about how Android’s openness is giving the carriers a way to potentially ruin the platform, I noted the following tidbit of information I had heard: Earlier this year, Verizon rolled out its own V Cast app store on some BlackBerry devices. This occurred despite the fact that BlackBerry devices have their own app store (App World). From… Read More

  • Verizon BlackBerry Storm gets V CAST Video

    We’ll openly admit it: We haven’t touched Verizon’s V CAST video service in years. We tend to avoid most feature phones as if their outer casing is made of unstable explosives, and V CAST and smartphones don’t tend to mix – until now. Read More

  • Rhapsody, Verizon Wireless now have a mobile music subscription service

    Can you hear me now? No, I’m listening to music thanks to Rhapsody. That horrendous opening can mean only one thing: Verizon Wireless has joined up with Rhapsody to launch a mobile music subscription service, the first of its kind. The name, V CAST Music with Rhapsody, could use some work, but that’s to be expected. (That’s actually a good idea for an article: on terrible… Read More

  • Moto RAZR2 Debuts On Verizon Wireless: Such A Powerful LCD

    The much-hyped Motorola RAZR2 debuts on Verizon Wireless today. It will come with all the focus group-tested VZW features that I never use like V-Cast music downloads and VZ Navigator GPS. So the service is as you’d expect from Verizon. Here that means the best call quality out of all the major carriers, but you do have to put up with VZW’s habit of crippling phones. Read More

  • The LG Prada is Verizon's Answer to the iPhone: Good Luck, Bro

    The $600 LG Prada is Verizon Wireless’ answer to the $500 Apple iPhone… OK, you can stop laughing now. It’s not that the Prada isn’t a good phone or anything—clearly it’s deserving of all the hype. But the thought of VZW “answering” to anything borders on the absurd. Can you imagine the Prada with really hottt V-Cast Tunezzz on it? There’s… Read More

  • Confirmed: V-Cast Mobile Video Pricing and Launch

    Laptop just confirmed that Verizon is launching V-Cast video tomorrow. The service will cost $15 a month or $25 a month for video and mobile web. There will only be a few markets at launch including Albuquerque and Salt Lake City, but expect UHF bands to clear up in other cities soon. This is mostly exciting for Verizon customers who like video on the mobile, which is something we are… Read More

  • Verizon Wireless Gives Users Daily V-Cast for $3

    Verizon Wireless is going daily with access to its V-Cast service. Currently, the V charges its customers $15 a month for the privilege of watching unlimited shorts from sports and the news. The new plan allows customers to sign up for one 24-hour period, where it’s all you can eat, then the love stops, and you awake with a hangover and no recollection of where you are or how you got… Read More
