Verizon Mobile Web Games and Apps Store launched

The same day Orange unveiled the upcoming launch of its Application Shop, Verizon Wireless announced the availability of Mobile Web Games and Apps Store.

The Games and Apps Store is presented by Verizon as “another easy and fun way for customers to access the games and applications it offers.” So, yeah, it’s obviously an app store like those from Apple, RIM and Microsoft, the sole difference being that it’s only for Verizon’s subscribers.

Reportedly, owners of Verizon Get It Now-capable handsets can browse and download hundreds of apps and games from the new Store – including games like “Guitar Hero World Tour” and “Tetris”, or applications like Backup Assistant and VZ Navigator.

Customers with data plans of at least $15 per month (like V CAST VPak) have unlimited access to the Mobile Web Games and Apps Store. Verizon Nationwide Plan subscribers can access the Store for free, but they’ll be charged $1.99 for every megabyte of data transfered.
