Google must take a stand for the end user and insist that all carrier installed apps and services are easily and freely removed by users at their discretion.
Do you see that happening? I wonder if Google has the stomach for a drawn-out battle with each of the carriers.
Coincidentally, this announcement of a Verizon V CAST App Store doesn’t bode well for the future carrier-Google relationships.
If you’re hoping for a Verizon iPhone anytime soon, take note. CDMA isn’t the only sticking point holding up that unicorn.
I wonder why Google doesn’t just acquire a carrier business and compete directly?
