This is an update to the carrier’s previously launched Ellipsis 8, a budget-tier tablet that, unfortunately, has earned modest-to-low reviews in the couple years since launching.

Verizon adds 5GB / 10GB prepaid plans: here are four alternatives

Verizon Wireless has added two new data-heavy plans for its prepaid customers, one with 5GB of 4G LTE data and the other with 10GB. The plans bring various perks with them, including hotspot support, carryover data, and more. Still, and per typical with Verizon, the plans are a little more pricey than you'd pay elsewhere, and it may be worth shopping around if you don't have to have Big Red. Here are some other prepaid plans with similar data options.

Google’s RCS push will never work without Verizon

Google’s RCS push will never work without Verizon

While Google announces they've begun working with the first US mobile carrier to release RCS to replace SMS and MMS, Verizon is absent from the scene. RCS is also known as Rich Communication Service, and it's aimed at turning text messaging into a much more function-full service. At this time quite a few mobile groups have joined the call to make RCS a standard for all - but Verizon isn't amongst them.

T-Mobile offers unlocked Pixel credit, one ups Verizon

T-Mobile offers unlocked Pixel credit, one ups Verizon

T-Mobile has decided to one up Verizon: bring an unlocked Pixel handset to the Uncarrier, and you’ll get a $325 credit automatically. This is in comparison to Verizon, which is offering up to a $300 credit to those who get the Pixel. The catch here is that you have to sign up for T-Mobile ONE, the carrier's 'unlimited everything' plan, which may not be a big deal for most converts. Speaking about this, CEO John Legere said, “I’m a huge fan of what Google has done with the Pixel…"

Verizon Stylo 2 V is the LG Stylo 2, with a V

Verizon Stylo 2 V is the LG Stylo 2, with a V

f you thought that carriers putting obtrusive, even obnoxious, branding on smartphones was a thing of the past, Verizon has just proven you wrong. The carrier has just announced the addition of the LG Stylo 2 V to its roster, and if the name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the very same LG Stylo 2 that was announced just last April. Except with a “V”, presumably for “Verizon”. That, however, isn’t the only thing Verizon has added, as it has also slapped on a slightly higher price tag as well.

Verizon used drones to inspect cell sites hit by hurricane

Verizon used drones to inspect cell sites hit by hurricane

Verizon is one of the latest companies to use drones for site inspects, the carrier has announced. Only hours after Hurricane Matthew’s exit, Verizon deployed drones to inspect sites for possible damage, doing so despite severe regional flooding. Without the drones, these cell site inspections may have taken days rather than hours due to the severity of the flooding, and potential cell service outages may have lasted longer.

Verizon will now sell you unlimited data in 30-minute blocks

Verizon will now sell you unlimited data in 30-minute blocks

Most US mobile carriers either moved away from, or stopped offering unlimited data plans long ago, instead pushing their customers towards tiered monthly plans. Verizon is one such that has completely eliminated the option, even going as far taking it away from certain users on grandfathered plans. But now they've taken a small step in the opposite direction, rolling out a new pay-as-you-go unlimited data option.

Yahoo’s email breach might spell disaster for Verizon deal

It would appear that the recent Yahoo email breach has not only tarnished its reputation with users, but also with the suitor it has found in Verizon. Rumors of Verizon's attempt to reduce its $4.8 billion bid have been circulating recently, and now we're getting some sort of confirmation that those whispers were correct. In fact, Verizon may be looking to back out of the deal entirely.

Verizon Google Pixel Android updates promised without delay

Verizon Google Pixel Android updates promised without delay

Verizon has made it clear that they will not be going through the same process with Google Android updates that they had with past Nexus models. This means you, Galaxy Nexus. While in the past, a device with a carrier, (even a Nexus device), would get OS updates from Google later than their off-carrier counterparts. This was because of system-level apps from the carrier and an extra layer of consideration on the part of the carrier. Now that wont be a problem any longer.

Google Pixel phone carrier details and pricing review

Google Pixel phone carrier details and pricing review

Today we're having a very brief and simple look at the various ways in which a person might purchase and utilize a Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL smartphone. There aren't a whole lot of options, at first glance - Verizon even seems to be pushing the idea that they will be the sole carrier option for the smartphone, the only place a person will be able to buy from! But they're not. And it's not. Google has made this decision very simple for people that check news and review sources like SlashGear before they buy.
