Google and Verizon join forces against Apple and AT & T

While in the United States Apple and AT & T maintains an exclusive partnership for over two years, Google has decided to fight back and combined with Verizon to develop new smartphones based mobile operating system Android. These terminals will be supplied with applications from Google, Verizon Wireless and publishers of third party software. This initiative is not unlike the existing partnerships between Google T-Mobile and Sprint.

No information was revealed on the manufacturers of smartphones in question, but one can imagine that it will bring its HTC Dream, Magic and Hero. Other manufacturers like Motorola and Samsung have also presented their models. For the past several tensions between Google and Verizon have prevented the outcome of discussions. While Google wanted to put its search engine the default on the terminal operator the Mountain View company had estimated that the share of advertising revenues required by the operator was disproportionate. Also, Google had supported the authorities in their application to operators so they can initiate an advantage over their network services and phone. Finally Verizon had never shown interest in adopting Android.

It finally seems that AT & T Verizon has replaced in the crosshairs of Google. Eric Schmidt, CEO of the giant canvas said "The Android platform will enable Verizon Wireless customers to surf faster and more easily on the Internet from anywhere." The smartphone will be available in a few weeks.
