Don’t find out about you, however we’re tremendous thinking about the brand new “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” flick hitting theaters in only a few extra weeks (December 18th). While it’s rather simple to steer clear of all of the trailers and spoilers on-line, something that’s unavoidable is the film’s promoting (there’s now The Light/Dark Side ice cream). We get it. The film is a advertising money cow and right here with a tie-in of their very own is Verizon Wireless.
No, it’s now not an extended past due R2-D2 themed Droid telephone. Instead, Verizon will probably be
providing up giving away free Star Wars themed Google Cardboard units beginning tomorrow, December 2d. There’s 4 in all, with designs that includes BB-8, R2-D2, Kylo Ren, and the brand new First Order Stormtrooper. Hells yeah.
The Cardboard units will most effective be to be had in-retailer, at the same time as provides final, and are most effective for Verizon Wireless consumers. Yeah, we all know. That remaining phase is a bummer. Verizon didn’t touch upon pricing, this means that there’s a great opportunity those
may well be free (edit: they’re free).
They’re additionally promising that a few more or less Star Wars themed VR revel in is at the means, with The Force Awakens “missions” inside Verizon stores. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Yup, they’re giving them away for free. Better get there early.
