This morning, Verizon announced the launch of a self-branded 7-inch tablet called the Ellipsis 7. The tablet is built around Android and is designed to compete with Google's Nexus 7 and other budget friendly, small form factor tablets. At the moment, not much is known about the new slate other than what it looks like.

Verizon has said that the Ellipsis 7 will feature an "HD" screen, LTE connectivity, and front and rear cameras. Android 4.4 appears to be left out and from the release images, it appears to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. While that is an interesting twist, the most odd part of the whole deal is the fact that Verizon released its own tablet in the first place. This puts the company in direct competition with other manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, and Google whose products it sells in its stores. The new Ellipsis 7 will retail for $249.99 off contract beginning on November 7th.
