I think Verizon has been a lot of talk and little action when it comes to opening its network to third-party apps, but the nation’s largest mobile carrier is beginning to grasp the importance of courting developers. Verizon will unveil a new developer program later this month in San Jose and will give some developers access to billing and location information, both of which can be huge tools for app creators. And the operator says it’s making progress with the Joint Innovation Lab, which aims to create a single global platform for developers. With its solid network and massive subscriber base, Verizon is only fashionably late in opening its network to developers.
