Verizon Wireless is now offering its service for optional use on its nationwide network, wireless devices, software and application to all the mobile phones which the company doesn’t offer.
Verizon Wireless has planned to make this service available to users throughout the US by the end of 2008.
Come 2008, the Verizon will publish the technical standards the development community will need to design products to interface with the Verizon Wireless network. Thus, any device that meets the minimum technical standards will be activated on the network.
Lowell McAdam, Verizon Wireless president and chief executive officer stated, “This is a transformation point in the 20-year history of mass market wireless devices one which we believe will set the table for the next level of innovation and growth.”
He further continued, “Verizon Wireless is not changing our successful retail model, but rather adding an additional retail option for customers looking for a different wireless experience.”
Verizon Wireless will carry on providing full service from retail stores where customers can shop, get 24/7 customer service and technical support which will be offered to a user-friendly handset interface and optimized software applications.
