Google Android handsets will work with Verizon Wireless

December 4, 2007

Google Android handsets will work with Verizon WirelessComing through in its promise to open up to other devices starting in 2008, Verizon Wireless will officially support Android handsets on its wireless network.

Verizon will not offer technical support for Android handsets in the way it offers support for official Verizon phones, but it will make sure that all Android models are tested for the network and that your specific handset properly connects.

In speaking to BusinessWeek, Verizon Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam admits that it makes sense to support Android. "We’re planning on using Android," he says, "Android is an enabler of what we do."

The move makes sense in the same way it makes sense for Verizon to support BlackBerry and Windows Mobile device. Android isn’t a real threat to the company, and to treat it as such would make Verizon look like "the bad guy" to customers hoping to snag a Google branded phone.
