Verizon's new GizmoTab is a kids tablet with surprisingly solid hardware and design

We've seen a few tablets designed specifically for children, though "designed" can sometimes be a bit of stretch. Nabi's hardware is kid-focused from the ground up, but Amazon and Samsung (two of the biggest tablet makers on the planet, by volume) just add a software skin and an impact-absorbing case to an existing product. In that context, Verizon's newly-announced GizmoTab is an interesting offering: not only is it one of the rare tablet designs meant uniquely for children, it also has surprisingly solid hardware underneath all that padding.

Verizon LG G5 owners report that the Nougat update is arriving today

Normally we see Verizon post a service alert on its website well before any of its customers receive a new software update on their devices. Today the company seems to be breaking that long habit, but the affected users aren't complaining. According to posts on the dedicated sub-Reddit and XDA forum, the Verizon version of LG's modular G5 is being updated to Android 7.0 starting today. Huzzah, tally ho, three cheers, et cetera.

[Deal Alert] Best Buy offers the Verizon prepaid version of the Moto G4 Play for just $35, no service required

The Moto G series has become something of a fixture of the mid-range and low-end Android market, thanks to a combination of competent hardware and clean software. That's no less true now that Motorola has gone modular with its flagship Z series - in fact, I'll bet that a few fans of the old Moto X models are moving down the line. Today Best Buy is offering the Verizon prepaid Moto G4 Play, normally $85, for a jaw-dropping $34.99. You don't even have to buy any service to get the phone - nice!

If you closely follow smartphone deals, you know that the US unlocked models of Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge don't often go on sale. However, for Black Friday, several retailers are handing some pretty nice discounts and freebies out for them. We're also seeing some discounts on American carrier and international dual SIM models.

Verizon offers deep discounts on Pixel phones (as low as $240) and Google Home for Black Friday

Black Friday deals have been kind of underwhelming for the last few years, but Verizon seems to be taking full advantage of its "exclusive" on the US carrier version of the Pixel phones. For customers who buy a new phone today (Thanksgiving) or tomorrow, the price is reduced to $10 a month for the Pixel and $15 a month for the Pixel XL. That works out to just $239.99 for the Pixel and $359.99 for the Pixel XL (only the 128GB model of the larger phone is being discounted) over the two-year payment period.

Android 7.0 Nougat update rolling out to Moto Z, Z Force, Z Droid, and Z Droid Force

Despite being released on August 22, hardly any devices outside of Google's Nexus and Pixel lineups officially run Android Nougat. In fact, only about 0.3% of all Android devices with the Play Store actually have it. Many Verizon customers have reported that their Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Droid Force phones have received OTAs to Nougat.

The Blue Coral Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is now available at the big 4 US carriers

Samsung launched the Note7 a few months ago with a lovely blue color option. Sadly, that phone was cancelled due to the defective battery issues. That left everyone with no way to get that nice blue phone, until now. The previously announced Blue Coral GS7 Edge is now live on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. It didn't take as long as we expected.

[Update: Now on the Google Store] Verizon shows two new Live Cases for the Pixels that don't seem to be announced yet

Verizon has decided, whether on purpose or accident, to show two as-yet-unannounced Live Cases for the Pixels. These are not ones you would find on the Google Store. The blue option for the Earth case looks a lot like one of the wallpapers from last year's Nexus phones, which makes me feel a bit nostalgic.

Verizon announces new Ellipsis 8 HD tablet with a $250 price and improved specs

Verizon has been pushing its budget-oriented Ellipsis tablets on the market for a couple years, and they've mostly been throwaway hardware. The latest Ellipsis HD is probably the nicest one, but that doesn't mean it's an amazing tablet. It just appears to be less bad.
