Verizon Wireless and Google have announced a strategic partnership that will leverage the Verizon Wireless network and the Android open platform to deliver mobile applications, services and devices. Both companies view this agreement as an opportunity to offer consumers an array of products that combine the speed of Verizon’s 3G network with the flexibility of the Android mobile platform.

Verizon Wireless and Google plan to co-develop several Android-based devices that will be pre-loaded with innovative applications from both parties as well as third-party developers. The agreement will come to fruition within the next few weeks as Verizon Wireless introduces Android-based handsets.
