Verizon Allowing Dev App Support For Android


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.
