Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE Tablet Software

The home screen of the Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE tablet has a great screen shot of some where that looks considerably more attractive than here in Chicago right now. Along the bottom of the screen we have the featured apps like google maps, Kindle, mail, Chrome, music, and the Google Play store. Just below the apps we have the back button, home button, and a button that displays all of the open windows.

Swiping the screen over, we can access the gallery, hangouts, play games, YouTube, iHeartRadio, and the Redbox Instant applications. In the main part of the screen the Google Flipboard app is front and center. The Google Flipboard app allows you to find the news you want to read about. Pick a couple of topics and the flipboard app will find articles on those topics just for you!

Flipping through the various apps and widgets of the Verizon Ellipsis 7 4G LTE tablet it’s mostly the typical applications found on Android devices. There are a couple of Verizon specific ones though, namely the Verizon Messages, and the VZ Navigator. The Verizon Messages application is pretty much what you think it is, a text messenger for your Ellipsis 7 tablet. Using the Verizon Messenger you can stay connected with all of your devices, including the PC and Apple products. The VZ Navigator is also just what you think it is, a navigation unit for your Verizon devices and is available for Android, Apple, and Windows phone 8.

There isn’t anything out of the ordinary looking at the settings and about page of the Verizon Ellipsis 4G LTE tablet. On the About Tablet page, it does confirm the model number (QMV7A)

    Can anyone tell me if I can use an external keyboard with this tablet? I see that Verizon is now selling a Bluetooth external keyboard for it but I was looking at one that plugs into the micro USB and don’t want to get it if it won’t work with my tablet.

    Nice review for what seems to be a little below the line tablet. I would love to stay connected on the go but with the cost of data plans being ridiculously high, it just isn’t an option.

    If someone ever does a truly unlimited 4g (or above by that time) connection just like you get with your cable, dsl, fios, etc, they will take away business from everyone as long as they can sustain the hit in bandwidth.

    Wireless is just to darn expensive and limited to do more than small things on.
