The Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet was announced by the carrier a couple of days ago and it has officially gone on sale today. Priced at $149.99 with a two year contract and $249.99 without a contract, the tablet is looking to compete with other budget ranged offerings like the Nexus 7 and the Amazon Kindle Fire. However, a rather underwhelming specs sheet might have a big impact on the potential buyers. Although it packs most of the features we expect in a budget tablet, it’s slightly behind in terms of raw hardware and power. Verizon is also selling a neat looking ruggedized case for the tablet along with the Zaggkeys Bluetooth keyboard + case.
The Ellipsis 7 houses a 1.2 GHz quad core processor of an unknown make, 1GB of RAM, a 3.2MP rear camera, 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a 7 inch 1280×800 display and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. As this is a Verizon branded tablet, there is ample support for 4G LTE networks across the country which is a huge bonus.
