Verizon Dooney Bourke Case
Verizon on Thursday kicked off the launch of its new Chocolate phone by introducing a new designer wrist case. The Dooney & Burke Limited Edition wristlet is tailored for women who want to bring just a phone and other essentials with them on a short trip. Its main compartments holds the phone itself with a soft lining that avoids scratches; a side pouch holds basics, such as cards or the earbuds likely to accompany a music phone such as LG's model. Owners can also detach the wrist strap for stuffing the case into a larger bag.
Cases will ship in D&B's characteristic white color alongside the new Chocolate phone on July 9th for a stand-alone price of $50. Verizon has also confirmed the price of the Chocolate, which will sell for the same $100 price as the outgoing model when part of a contract.
