Tablets, like smartphones, come in many different sizes. And, as tablet use has grown among Americans over the past few years, the ways the devices are used – for work, play, reading, researching and more – have expanded as well.
The new Verizon Ellipsis 7 tablet offers users another option when shopping for a new fully featured tablet at an affordable price. Exclusive to Verizon Wireless, this compact tablet has a 7-inch HD screen and is easy to carry. Readers can download e-books using the Amazon Kindle app, and because of its size, the Ellipsis 7 is ideal to hold with one hand. Entertainment seekers, on the other hand, can use Redbox Instant by Verizon to watch their favorite movies when they are traveling, at the gym, or at home when someone else is using the TV.
With the holidays approaching, family members scattered across the country may want to stay in touch and exchange greetings. A front-facing camera combined with 4G LTE connectivity on the Ellipsis 7 makes video chatting with loved ones during holiday festivities fast and easy. Instead of passing the phone around, a family member can hold the tablet and get all the kids in one frame to greet an uncle or aunt face to face.
Staying organized during the holidays is also important, and users can sync their calendars and email accounts with this tablet so they know when family is arriving. Kids can stay occupied before dinner while playing their favorite games like Plants vs. Zombies or download others from the Google Play Store.
Verizon Messages is included with the Ellipsis 7, allowing users to send and receive text messages from their tablet. And with the most recent app update, users can send customized photos with collages for a more personal messaging experience.
The Ellipsis 7 is the first product from Verizon Wireless in the Ellipsis family. It will be available online and in Verizon Wireless stores starting Nov. 7 for $249.99. For a limited time, customers can get $100 off any tablet, including the Ellipsis 7, when purchasing with a new two-year contract.
