Cleverly folding in this weekend's Tokyo Marathon with the current appetite for fruit-named wearables, here's some advertising silliness from fruit moguls Dole: the wearable banana.

So, here's the problem: We're big fans of the recently revealed pre-order bonus for Donkey Kong Country Returns, but we don't really know what to call it. Everything we've come up with so far has been way, way too suggestive: Banana dock? Banana holder? Banana sheath? The official GameStop announce...

The Z10's fresh out of the gate, but it probably serves Motorola well to be thinking well, well ahead -- like 5 megapixels worth of ahead, for example.
