BASKING RIDGE, NJ and SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Verizon Wireless and Jawbone, the leader in personal mobile technology, today announced a one-day event designed to upgrade consumers to the ultimate mobile experience. On Friday, Nov. 26, with the purchase of select mobile phones at Verizon Wireless Communications Stores nationwide, users will also receive the breakthrough Jawbone ICON "Hero" Bluetooth® headset for free (originally a $99 value).
This initiative is part of Verizon Wireless' mission to provide its users with the best, highest quality and complete mobile experience available: a robust and reliable network, a powerful mobile phone with the richest applications, and a headset to untether the screen from your ear, enabling you to simultaneously look at and hear your applications.
"Headsets are essential in today's wireless environment for both convenience and multitasking," says Pat Bucci, Verizon Wireless' director of marketing. "This one day event provides our customers with a great headset to deliver the ultimate mobile experience."
Jawbone ICON combines freedom of hands free with the reliability users have come to expect from all their mobile devices. Whether on a conference call in a noisy coffee shop, listening to music, updating a Twitter status with your voice or getting GPS turn-by-turn directions, ICON allows users to clearly and seamlessly experience all of their audio from their phones directly and discreetly to their ears.
"Verizon Wireless is providing its users with the perfect opportunity to experience a new and heightened level of mobility," explains Hosain Rahman, chief executive officer of Jawbone. "By combining the high quality network and phones with a Jawbone ICON 'Hero', Verizon Wireless customers will be able to fully experience their mobile lives the way it was intended fast, reliable and hands free."
Additionally, ICON is the only headset with a built-in intelligence that syncs with Jawbone's industry-first MyTALK online platform allowing users to seamlessly download applications, updates and more while improving and increasing the functionality and value of your device over time.
