Verizon says that the tablet offers Verizon Messages which is basically an SMS service allowing for texts to be sent and received. The Amazon Kindle app is preloaded for readers and the Redbox app is pre-installed for those who love to view movies and television shows. The Google Play Store will also be available, so this doesn't appear to be a forked version of Android running the show.
While the tablet is priced at $249.99, Verizon is offering tablet buyers who sign a two-year pact, $100 off the price of any slab including the Ellipsis 7.
