What do you use your Verizon 4G LTE powered tablet for most often?
My 4G LTE tablet lets me review and publish articles and videos for The Valley Girl Show and see what Kim Kardashian is up to.

How does the speed of Verizon 4G LTE make your life easier?
I have a back problem, so I try to limit what’s in my bag. Now I bring my tablet to download books, magazines and notes so fast, thanks to Verizon’s 4G LTE.

How do you accesorize your tablet?
With stickers and all my favorite apps—oh, and I named it Betty.

Favorite accessories?
Headphones, so people nearby won’t hear Taylor Swift on repeat, and the stylus, for drawing smiley faces.

What are your favorite apps?
Twitter, Slacker and Chess
