SAN DIEGO, CA; BASKING RIDGE, NJ; and SAN RAMON, CA — From CTIA WIRELESS I.T. & Entertainment 2009®, Verizon Wireless said today it is working with Netpace to help build and grow the recently launched Verizon Developer Community (VDC). The VDC is the place for mobile developers to learn about all of Verizon's applications programs, to submit applications for the soon-to-be launched V CAST Apps storefront, and to interact with Verizon experts and others in the mobile applications community.

Netpace developed the content management, work-flow, provisioning and application ingestion aspects of the platform to address developer demand for a streamlined, fast and transparent experience. The processes provide developers with pertinent development resources, premium content placement, click-thru contracts, blogs, forums, reporting and overall support for developers.

"This is an exciting opportunity for developers to not only display their skills on an extremely visible platform, but also to benefit financially from the experience," said Omar Khan, chief executive officer of Netpace.

About the VDC
The Verizon Developer Community was launched to foster innovation in the mobile application space. Developers who have created apps for platforms such as Java, BREW, Android, Windows Mobile and others are encouraged to join the VDC and to submit their concepts and applications for V CAST Apps.

The developer portal now offers simple, click-through agreements so developers can quickly and easily start the path to market for their applications.

The VDC provides a streamlined testing and certification process for applications, with the goal of having approved applications launched within 14 days of submission, and gives developers the opportunity to set their own prices for applications, among other things. To register for the VDC, visit http://developer.verizon.com.

News and updates about the Verizon Developer Community will be posted on Twitter at www.twitter.com/VDCConference.
