This is a rather strange move by Verizon but hey, it's not the strangest thing we have seen them do that's for sure. It appears as if Verizon is reaching out and starting their own application storefront and is offering big money (approx. $100,000+ total) to those who partake in the creation of these applications.

RIM devices have been targetted here as being the key device people should be developing for, which can be rather tricky. Maybe that's why this sort of event is even being held.

Registration for this all is set to begin on August 14th and closing for application submissions is on September 20th. So if building an application, winning some money and sharing revenue with Verizon for these apps sounds like a sweet deal to you, then check out the full details on their site.

Will non-Verizon users be able to access this store (I'm from Canada and on Bell)? I ask because I could see some good apps being made with the kind of cash being dished out.

They wont push icons if they have a app store located on the device that is center of attention.

Really VZW has had a app store for years (Get it Now on BREW devices)

They are just making it bigger and better and bringing it up to date to be competitive in current market. Options are always good.
