More tablets mean more options for customers to choose from. And starting today, customers now have another option – the Verizon Ellipsis 8. It’s a compact and affordable tablet ready for the grab-and-go lifestyle.

The new tablet has an 8-inch HD display so the text you read is sharp and the pictures you view are crisp and with accurate colors. Having an HD display is important for the tablet experience. Think about some of the common uses for the tablet: checking social media, email, viewing pictures, watching videos. No one wants to read an email with blurry text or look at low-resolution pictures.

Bookworms will appreciate the compact design as the Ellipsis 8 is comfortable to hold in one hand. And with the Google Play Store, readers can download all their favorite books to carry with them. Its portability makes it easy to bring on the train to read a quick chapter and its HD display makes text easy to read. 

Performance is also important for the tablet experience. Just because the Ellipsis 8 is affordable doesn’t mean customers are compromising. The tablet has a 1.5 Ghz quad-core processor for multitasking and smooth graphics. This means professionals can quickly switch between corporate email and presentations to get work done and gamers can enjoy downloading and playing video games. The 5000 mAh battery means hours of fun and web browsing to keep you entertained and productive.

Verizon Messages lets you send and receive texts from your tablet. This means you can relax on the couch catching up on social media or reading a e-book and leave your smartphone in the other room. Conversations are synced so whatever you send and read on your tablet will also show up on your smartphone.

The XLTE-ready Verizon Ellipsis 8 is now available online and in Verizon Wireless stores for $249.99, and for a limited time, the tablet will be available for $149.99 with new two-year activation. Users will be able to add the tablet to their existing MORE Everything accounts for an additional $10 monthly access fee.
