Verizon turns up the apps by creating a free workplace for apps creators. Free lattes too

This article on the CNN Web site tells you what Verizon thinks of apps: they’re essential. Verizon’s Application Innovation Center in the SoMa (South of Market) region of San Francisco has all the trappings of a 21st-centruy apps factory: free development tools, free access to development handsets, wireless networking, a shielded test facility, and free Barrista-crafted lattes. All of this screams “We want apps!” Why? Because the availability of apps now drives the cellular landscape. When voice service is a given, when Internet access is a given, when text messaging is a given, then apps become the differentiator. That’s precisely what the EDA360 philosophy says too.
