Verizon's Ellipsis 7 tablet arrives on November 7
Verizon will launch its own Ellipsis 7 Android tablet with 4G LTE support on November 7. Unfortunately, the official news article published by Verizon Wireless' Albert Aydin does not reveal any specs, except the price and a few general facts like support for Verizon Messages, Redbox Instant, the size of the screen or full compatibility with Google Play Store.
Fortunately an unknown source leaked the specs of the Verizon Ellipsis 7 to Droid Life and it seems this is simply a reasonably priced 4G LTE slate without any high-end features. These are the leaked specs:
- Processor: 1.2 GHz quad-core (unspecified brand and model)
- Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage and microSD support for up to 32 GB
- Cameras: VGA front facing and 3.2 MP rear
- Connectivity: 4G LTE and WiFi
- Operating system: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
According to Verizon, this tablet "is the first product from Verizon Wireless in the Ellipsis family" so the next natural step would be to add a 10-inch tablet to the family, but there is no information about this right now.
The Ellipsis 7 will arrive in Verizon Wireless stores and online starting on November 7 for a price of $249.99 contract-free and $149.99 with the purchase of a new two-year contract.
