Verizon on all devices

November 29, 2007

Verizon Wireless plans to open its mobile network to all devices and mobile Internet applications next year. The company has unveiled a package of free software to try to stimulate the development of handsets that are open to any Internet service. The move marks an apparent reversal of course by the second-biggest US mobile carrier in the face of Google's agitation for a more open US wireless industry.

It has also said it may bid in a spectrum auction in the US in January so that it can build an open wireless network of its own.
