    VZW To Sell Droid and upcoming Android Devices through Google

    Just confirmed via CES that VZW has jumped on board.

    When new Android devices come out you can purchase via Google Checkout. You will need a Google account as well.

    What advantage does this create vs. purchasing from VZW?

    Why does google care? Isn't Android free?

    I'm going to stick with buying my phone with the company that will provide services. The Apple/ATT method did not seem to go well when there is a problem with the phone.

    expands their market and advertising.

    No difference but it's just an option. It will be especially great for non customers who already have a Google checkout/Account...click click click.

    All in one place to shop for your device and carrier. A lot of people are always wondering if they can get X device on Y carrier now they will know.

    Honestly it shouldn't hurt Verizon. It actually could get them more customers if someone can click around on Google's site and see that "oh damn I was going to go to TMo because of the Nexus one but it looks like its on Verizon too!". Just another way for people to purchase a Verizon phone.

    Also even if Google sells them, Verizon gets the monthly $$$$

    And VZW doesn't have to spend as much on advertising it either. Just about everybody uses google and run into it on the web.
