We do know that it will be available on the Verizon Up rewards program, so every $300 spent on monthly bills can be turned into prizes - from VIP tickets to everyday rewards. The phone lets you enjoy 3D-like graphics sans the glasses. You'll be able to interact with those images using a set of gestures.
