The Ellipsis 10 tablet is a Verizon Wireless exclusive, featuring the largest capacity battery of any 10-inch tablet on the Verizon 4G LTE network. The 1920×1200 pixel display provides high-definition images whether you are catching a flick on your tablet, playing a game to pass the time or even just scrolling through photos from your latest holiday adventures! And one of the coolest parts is that the entire device – display, case, etc. – has an anti-fingerprint coating to prevent those pesky smudges that can distract you on most tablets.

The LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition is the next generation smartwatch from Verizon Wireless. It is available for pre-order now! Since the Verizon Wireless network is the most reliable in the country, you can be sure that your smartwatch is doing it’s job wherever you are, and even when you are far away from the connected smartphone – after all, what’s the point of having a smartwatch if it’s coverage isn’t dependable? With Verizon, you don’t need to worry about that!

One of my favorite things about this new smartwatch is how it looks like a normal watch face. It’s an incredibly sharp accessory and the fact that it keeps you connected to everything you need access to? Well, that’s a holiday bonus that would even make Clark Griswold smile!

This last bit of news is definitely not least – Verizon Wireless has premiered TravelPassSM. This is especially important for folks who travel abroad and want to cut down on their communication expenses. Travel Pass allows Verizon Wireless customers to use their existing talk, messaging and data plans while outside the U.S. for as little as $2 per day, per line. That’s right, no more roaming charges, calling cards or searching for Wi-Fi while you travel for work or leisure outside the United States.

This is phenomenal! I don’t travel outside the country very often, but I do visit family in Michigan a few times a year and they live up by Lake St. Clair. Whenever I am there, my phone sends me a text message that says, “Welcome to Canada!” Obviously I’m not in Canada, but my phone thinks I am, so understandably, I choose not to use it when I’m right on the border. Until now that is! Now for just a nominal fee, I can use all the features on my phone while visiting my family and not worry about a surprise on my next bill.

Activate TravelPass by visiting My Verizon and managing your International services, and have confidence that you can rely on the same dependable coverage you are used to here in the U.S. because unlike other providers that claim free roaming but move you to a slower network, Verizon keeps you on the same top-rated network.

“Once at your destination, you’ll receive a text message welcoming you to the country and reminding you of the service and the daily fee: $2 per 24 hours in Mexico and Canada or $10 per 24 hours in 65+ other countries. (Click here to see the countries with coverage.) The daily fee is only charged on the days you use it in one of the TravelPass countries. TravelPass activates when you make or receive a call, connect to a data service or send a text while within one of the 65+ countries where TravelPass is available. Another daily session will begin once you make or receive a call, send a text or use data after the 24-hour period expires. You can keep TravelPass on your account at no charge so it will be ready the next time your travels take you abroad.”

I hope this information assists you in your travel planning and gift-buying excursions this holiday season!
