August is here, and students of all ages are getting ready to go back to school! We have our fashion gear down (check out our back to school essentials here), we got some tech help from Verizon Wireless who shared the best tablets, phones and devices for kids.
Tablets are being used in classrooms and for educational purposes more than ever. Tablets such as the DROID XYBOARDs or Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 are beneficial for students of all ages. Slim and light enough to fit inside backpacks, students can rely on the touch-screen display and improved screen technology to type, view notes and read e-textbooks outside or under the fluorescent lights of a classroom.
For younger students who are begging for their first cell phone, the Pantech Marauder is the perfect option for any beginner smartphone user. The Marauder features a simple design and display that is easy for younger teens to use but offers the same smartphone experience available on most mobile devices such as a virtual and slide out keypad, access to email, a camera for video chatting, all while running on 4G LTE speeds.

Another great device for kids as they head back to school is DROID INCREDIBLE 4G LTE by HTC. The INCREDIBLE 4G LTE also comes preloaded with Read Later, a feature that allows students to bookmark online content such as articles and websites that they can read later, even while offline. For after school fun, kids can use Video Pic'?¢ to take pictures and videos at the same time that they can later show their friends and family.
For those buying new device this fall, don'??t forget to donate your old phones and accessories to a wonderful cause. HopeLine® from Verizon collects donated phones and phone accessories, and distributes them to participating domestic violence agencies and organizations nationwide. These phones are then provided to victims and survivors as they rebuild their lives; phones that cannot be reused are recycled properly, and charitable donations in the form of grants are provided to organizations that help victims of domestic violence.
