Verizon introduces the Ellipsis 10 tablet with big 9100mAh battery

Maybe far more than the smartphone space, the world of tablet sales is dominated by a few key brands: you’ve got Apple and Samsung leading the pack, and while if we include PC-based tablets our options start improving, there really aren’t a lot of strong contenders among other Android OEMs. Maybe picking up on that vacuum, carriers have started offering their own tablets, like Verizon has with its Ellipsis models – if you’re going to buy a second-tier tablet already, why not at least buy one with strong carrier support, right? Last month we checked out a leak outing the upcoming Ellipsis 10 for the carrier and today we see that hardware finally go official – and with some slightly more impressive specs than we’d been expecting.

The Ellipsis 10 offers a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 display, tuns a 1.5GHz quad-core SoC, and offers 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD). There’s a 5MP main camera (2MP front-facer), stereo speakers, and a pretty impressive-sounding 9100mAh battery – that’s only about 10 percent smaller than the power pack in the new iPad Pro.

Pricing isn’t too bad, either, and while the on-contract $200 tag is a little higher than we’d hoped for, the full $300 retail price is quite respectable – especially considering that this is an LTE-connected model.

The tablet ships with Android 5.1, and is available from Verizon as of today.
