Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet official with November 7th release date

Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet official with November 7th release date
Remember that tweet the other day that outed a Verizon branded tablet called the Ellipsis? Well, the 7 inch slate is now official and is being priced at $249.99 without a contract (more on that below). The tablet will be launched on November 7th, which is Thursday for those of you who can't remember what day it is. The tablet is equipped with 4G LTE connectivity although no specs have been released. Big Red does say that this is the first product in the Ellipsis family, which makes it sound like the nation's largest carrier has some plans about offering other connected devices like a smartphone or other tablets.

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.

I have a feeling this is why Verizon is delaying the certification of the Nexus 7 because of this POS! So now that this done can we please get the Nexus 7 certified so i can use 4G when i travel......

Bingo. They'd rather sell you this. It's not as good, it costs more, & it's full of their bloatware. Gotta love Big Red.

VZW should have launched this tablet last Thursday on Halloween instead. It would have been more scary than any James Wan film. The thought of how much unremovable, always running bloatware jammed onto this device must truly be horrifying. So this is a Verizon branded Amazon branded Google Android tablet? Yeeesh that's confusing. You couldn't pay me enough to touch that thing. Ohh, and it requires a monthy data fee just to use it? And that's after paying $250 to take it out of the box? Outstanding! It's shocking to read it has the Google Play store instead of Amazon's god-awful app store that literally has none of the obvious popular Android applications. VZW should put their app store back on just for old-time's sake so they can confuse & irritate customers even more than they already are.

I would prefer at least 16 GB of internal storage and something better than a VGA front-facing camera. Verizon can do better than this.

I want to work at Verizon. Apparently they promote heavy drug and alcohol use in the workplace. Or, everyone there is out of their F-ING minds!

Or I could buy an Asus MeMO HD 7 sans LTE with better specs for $120 less off amazon. No contract either.
