BASKING RIDGE, NJ — The last turkey sandwich has been made and the last piece of pumpkin pie has been eaten. It's the week after Thanksgiving and 'tis the season to pack on a few pounds. Verizon Wireless customers can battle the bulge and hit the gyms this holiday season with the MOTOKRZR K1m. MOTOKRZR K1m, is the hottest device to hit the streets and the ultimate device for exercise enthusiasts. The device comes fully-loaded with a number of features that make exercise even easier, including: V CAST Music, Bluetooth®-capabilities, and Bones in Motion Active (BiM Active). And let's face it not everyone is going to spend the week after Thanksgiving out running a marathon or using an elliptical machine that's why Verizon Wireless also wants to remind customers who are beginning their holiday shopping of VZ NavigatorSM to help locate the nearest shopping destinations.
The MOTOKRZR K1m boasts a number of features including a radically slender clamshell design, reflective, metallic gloss finish, and simple touch sensor music controls for easy access to V CAST Music, the most comprehensive over-the-air music service in the country. With more than 1.4 million songs available for download, V CAST Music is sure to have the jams for any workout activity, and customers can set up their workout playlists for any type of exercise, without missing a single phone call. Plus, the MOTOKRZR K1m can store additional songs with an optional 2 GB microSDTM card, making it easy for customers to take their music collection anywhere they go, Bluetooth*-enabled headsets for a completely wireless workout experience, and an arm case pouch for easy access to their phone while exercising.
The MOTOKRZR K1m also comes fully equipped with a number of downloadable applications from Get It Now®, Verizon Wireless' virtual online store, including: BiM Active. BiM Active uses GPS tracking technology to continuously monitor a customer's speed, distance, calories burned, pace and route, simultaneously while they run and listen to their music. Once the workout is complete, customers can upload their activity to their own personal BiM Active online account where they can view their activity history, workout analysis and blog with other members of the BiM Active online community.
And for the majority of customers who spent Thanksgiving stuffing their faces in front of the television watching the game and plan on hitting the malls instead of the gym, VZ Navigator is here to help. VZ Navigator, exclusively available to Verizon Wireless customers, uses Location Based Services, including mapping, audible turn-by-turn navigation and the ability to find over 14 million points of interest (like ATMs, restaurants and gas stations) so customers can find their way to new destinations quickly and easily. With VZ Navigator, customers see a map of their current location, with directions leading to a selected address, and hear turn-by-turn navigation with audible voice directions to any location in the U.S. VZ Navigator functions as an advanced navigation system on a wireless phone, but only costs a fraction of the price of vehicle-installed GPS devices and systems perfect for customers who are in a hurry to find the nearest department store to finish their holiday shopping.
Both BiM Active and VZ Navigator are available in the getGOING shopping aisle in the Get It Now virtual store. BiM Active is available for $9.99 monthly access or $1.99 for 24-hour use purchase.

Download charges for Get It Now applications vary and airtime charges apply when browsing, downloading and using certain applications.

V CAST Music songs cost as little as 99 cents if purchased from the PC or $1.99 if purchased and downloaded over-the-air onto a V CAST Music phone.
