Dark Knight Rises Phone Covers Coming From Nokia

[gallery link="file" order="DESC"]

In case it weren't clear by all the Nokia-branded stuff, the exclusive trailer earlier today and the Dark Knight Rises phone, Warner Brothers has entered into a promotional partnership with Nokia and The Dark Knight Rises.

The company's new smartphone, the Lumia 710, comes in a specially tricked-out Dark Knight Rises edition but what's the point in getting a phone that looks cool, if you have to slap a cover over it to protect it from wear and tear?

Well, Nokia's got that, ahem, covered. The manufacturer announced today a series of "X-press-On covers" for the Lumia which--whether you've got the black bat version or not--can have you trick out your phone with the distinct Dark Knight Rises Batman logo. The covers, like the Lumia, will be available exclusively through T-Mobile stores.

If you've already got a Lumia 710 and want a cover, they're free in-store. If you haven't, but want one badly enough to sign a two-year service agreement with T-Mobile, the phone is free aftera $50 rebate, and then you'll be a Lumia owner and, thus, qualify for the cover.

As part of the promotion, Nokia is also sending one randomly-selected winner to the world premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, July 16 in New York.

The covers come in a variety of colors, as seen at top, but sadly none of them are the "emergency Batphone red" seen in the beloved Adam West TV version of Batman. Which is a shame.

The Dark Knight Rises will be in theaters on July 20.
