    Gonna borrow your soapbox for a second JB. In the context of this article, it simply says that VZW won't allow these apps to enter their app store. It won't prevent us from grabbing them from other sources, just as users of the iPhone have done. I agree it would be tacky of Verizon to try to limit the download of apps to only those from their app store, but I don't see it as plausible unless they come up with another device like the iPhone that has an exclusive deal and brand new platform. Verizon said in it's letter to the FCC that exclusivity deals foster innovation and creativity. I can't agree with this one bit. When the playing field is leveled with any carrier being able to carry a device, it fosters innovation on the part of the carrier to distinguish themselves from the rest through customer interaction and experience. You would see a scramble to offer the best rates, plans, app stores, and customer service. Conversations like this would not even exist.
