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.
