Following up on the news of the forthcoming HTC Droid Incredible update, Verizon Wireless has confirmed that the smartphone will usher in the debut of the V CAST App Store on Android after first being made available across its BlackBerry lineup earlier this year. The V CAST App Store is Verizon’s own app store offering exclusives such as V CAST Tones and V CAST Video, as well as apps from third-party developers who have previously submitted apps to Verizon for prior approval and inclusion. As alluded to in the previous article, the V CAST App Store will also support carrier billing direct to Verizon Wireless accounts while the standard Android Market lacks support for the feature.
Verizon has released an official statement:
“Verizon Wireless will begin pushing a software update to the DROID Incredible next week. The update includes software enhancements that will pre-install V CAST Apps on the phone. We said earlier this year that we’d be expanding V CAST Apps to the Android platform, and the DROID Incredible is the first Android phone with the store. Developers continue to submit apps, and as a reminder, V CAST Apps allows carrier billing, so customers who purchase applications through our store will see those charges on their monthly bill.
