Verizon Teams With Google On Cell Phones, Google Voice
Verizion, the nation's largest cell phone service, announced Tuesday morning it is teaming up with Google to develop phones using the search giant's Android mobile software platform.
Verizion Wireless CEO Lowell McAdam said on a conference call it will introduce two new Android phones this year. He also said the products would carry Google Voice, a calling service that aggregates phone numbers and forwards calls. Google Voice does not operate on Apple's iPhone, a fact that has been the subject of scrutiny at the Federal Communications Commission.
"You either have an open device or not, and this will be open," McAdams said.
