While adults are getting excited for the Android Wear and the upcoming Apple Watch, let’s not forget about the kids. Back in July, LG announced a new kid-friendly wearable for children ages 4 and up, called the KizOn.

Samsung has launched a beautiful Velvet Red Galaxy Note 4 in time for the Christmas season, but there is one big Debbie Downer to this story. It’s only available in South Korea, and more specifically, SK Telecom.
There are no signs that this one will make it’s way to other markets, but we can be hopeful right? How about a Verizon exclusive with a giant Verizon logo on the back and/or on the home button? Anyways, the phone appears to be identical to the original Note 4, which gets the octa-core Exynos since it’s the international version.
Verizon is currently pushing out an OTA update to the Motorola Droid Turbo phones. This update is a preparatory package for Advanced Calling 1.0, also known as VoLTE, along with some undisclosed bug fixes.
Before Droid Turbo can make use of Advanced Calling, Verizon must get this package out and make some adjustments on its side before the feature is turned on.
The majority of the bug fixes were not detailed, but there was mention of a fix for email attachments not being centered correctly. This has been remedied.
No word yet on when the Droid Turbo will see its Android 5.0 update.
American customers of the Galaxy Note 4 were quite excited when Samsung and AT&T officially launched the Gear VR a couple of days ago.
