Verizon on cusp of releasing its 8-inch tablet?
The nation's largest carrier is apparently on the cusp of releasing the device. Some information about the tablet appears on the operator's website, but it is not a complete listing. The page does show that the Verizon Ellipsis 8 will be priced at $249.99. Affix your John Hancock to the dotted line of a two-year contract, and the price suddenly drops $100 to $149.99. You will also be able to purchase the slab using Verizon Edge. For $0 down, and 24 monthly payments of $10.41, the tablet will be yours.
The 8-inch screen keeps the same 1280 x 800 resolution found on the Ellipsis 7, which is too bad because it results in a lower pixel density of 189ppi. A 5000mAh battery powers the unit, and there is a 5MP snapper on board. A quad-core 1.5GHz CPU is under the hood, and the tablet supports 4G LTE connectivity. It would appear that Verizon plans on launching the Ellipsis 8 just in time for the holiday shopping season, so stay tuned.
