Verizon Wireless will "soon" introduce a comprehensive App development platform for Android OS, says Jennifer Byrne, Executive Director of New Business Development & Partnership at Verizon Wireless.
The developer kit has been available for the RIM platform.
A Verizon spokeswoman declined to provide a date for the launch of Android developer support.
In addition to providing development tools, Verizon is providing advertising support with the integration of AdMarvel, she explains.
I caught up with Byrne yesterday in New York at thepaidContent Mobile conference where she was a speaker. This is the first of several video interviews from the event.
Below is a shot of a panel from yesterday moderated by by Staci Kramer, co-editor of paidContent (l), Bryrne, Nina Zagat, the BBC's Miranda Cresswell and Brian Perez GM of NBA Digital.
