Verizon's budget-minded Ellipsis 7 tablet ships November 7th for $250


Verizon subscribers who think that even the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is too costly now have an extra-frugal option. The carrier has just launched the previously rumored Ellipsis 7, its first self-badged Android slate. The 7-inch LTE device is no screamer with its 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8GB of expandable storage, 1,280 x 800 IPS screen, 3.2-megapixel rear camera and basic front-facing shooter. However, it may be appealing to Google purists who've so far been denied a working Nexus 7 on Verizon -- the tablet is running a near-stock version of Android 4.2. Those intrigued by the Ellipsis 7 can pick one up starting November 7th, when it will be available for either $250 contract-free or $150 on a two-year term.
