verizon google androidVerizon Wireless and Google today announced a partnership to bring the Android open platform to Verizon's network.

The two companies are planning to move things along as quickly as possible. And there's a good enough reason for it, seeing that T-Mobile has already launched its fourth Android OS smartphone this week, the Samsung Behold II. Verizon and Google plan to co-develop several Android-based devices that will come preloaded with apps from both companies as well as third-party developers.

No specifics were mentioned, but Verizon said that the Android phones will come from "leading handset manufacturers". Maybe Motorola's one of them. We'll have to wait till the next few weeks, when Verizon is planning to introduce the first set of Android OS devices.

Verizon needs to launch better phones to win people over and that device from Motorola is looking good (I dunno its name).
