Verizon Wireless began rolling out a new minor software update Thursday evening. While the listed improvements are hardly earth shattering, there is one addition that is of particular interest: Verizon’s V CAST Apps store. The new store will allow DROID Incredible users to download and install applications in a manner similar to the Android Market, but V CAST Apps supports carrier billing. This means purchases made can be billed to a subscriber’s Verizon Wireless account as opposed to a credit card. The update, delivered over the air as an 18MB file, should be pushed out to all users over the next few days. Hit the jump for a full change log.
