Verizon offers smartphone app bundle for Android, BlackBerry and Apple devices

Verizon Wireless has announced a new Smartphone App Pack bundle, which offers six different apps for the price of just one.

What makes this product offering special is that the bundle includes some of the carrier's most popular services and apps, such as NFL Mobile Premium, Verizon Video, VZ Navigator and Visual Voicemail.

Other beneficial characteristics include Usage Controls, and a Ringback Tones subscription. One novel factor of this package is its price, which is marked at $12.99 per month.

VZ Navigator and Verizon Video are both available for $10 monthly on Android, in comparison to the bundle price. Customers can enjoy the option of purchasing the Smartphone App Pack through the My Verizon app on their Android, BlackBerry, or iPhone handsets. Those who already have some of the apps can pick up the others for little, or no extra cost. Verizon announced that it has very little time left for promotion, but it did not give a clear idea of when is it going to end.

For the first time in history, the Super Bowl will be streamed to select smart phones via NFL Mobile, only from Verizon.
