Along with its launch of the Xperia Z3v, Verizon will kick off a promotion that’ll knock $200 off of the total price of the Xperia Z3v and Xperia Z2 Tablet when they’re purchased together. Finally, Verizon says that it’ll also begin selling the Android Wear-powered Sony SmartWatch 3 “soon” as well.
Remember the Sony Xperia Play? That device launched in May 2011, and that was the last time that we saw Sony and Verizon release a smartphone together. It certainly took them a while to get together again, but thankfully the device that they’re launching this time around looks like a quality device that’s worthy of a look if you’re a Verizon customer in the hunt for a new handset.
