I think the difference is that Apple owns the store too. Verizon does not own the Google Market/Google Play.

Allowing the carrier to restrict apps would be like Comcast being able to restrict what browser you can use.

When they rejected Google Voice and more recently the Drop Box app, articles were written. There are even top 10/top 20 lists of apps rejected without any rational reason.

When they rejected Google Voice, there were even journalists claiming Apple was inviting regulation.
