When I first caught wind of Verizon selling a self branded 7 inch tablet, admittedly, I was immediately skeptical and I started making judgements without even hearing the facts first. Why was I so skeptical? Because Verizon is not a hardware manufacture, they are a mobile wireless carrier, and they make their money from data usage, not by selling top of the line hardware. And since the actual hardware manufacture didn't put their name on the tablet, I could only assume that they weren't even impressed with it themselves.
Verizon is selling the Ellipsis 7 for $50 with a 2 year contract or $249 without the contract. $250 is a really good deal on a 7 or 8 inch tablet from top manufacturers such as LG or Asus and with top of the line specs. I'm about to let you know if the Ellipsis can hold it's own against these major competitors.
