Verizon Wireless caused a small bit of controversy when they launched the 7-inch Ellipsis 7 tablet as opposed to the Nexus 7 back in November of last year. While that issue seems to have blown over, Big Red has recently shared some details on a software update for the Ellipsis 7 tablet. The update brings only improvements, but judging from the changelog, it seems to be one that current users will want to grab.

This update will bring the tablet to software version MV7A_31D26_422. More important though, is the changelog, which includes items such as improved Verizon 4G LTE data connectivity and battery life. This update also improves the quality of images taken with the onboard 3.2 megapixel rear-facing camera and deals with the Mobile Hotspot user experience and connectivity.


Rounding out the improvements with this update include the following items;

  • Wireless connectivity
  • SIM Card Activation experience improvements
  • Added support for Prepaid Plans
  • Added feature to allow editing of the APN name for Private IP
  • Option to configure camera to store photos and videos on an external SD card that can be purchased separately
  • Added option for end users to move all applications to tablet space manually except for the preloaded apps
  • Improved the UI notification for low memory condition

That rounds out what Ellipsis 7 users can expect with this latest update. This one should be rolling out at this time, and those who have yet to get a notification can either sit back with a bit of patience and wait, or take the proactive approach and go looking for it. Those choosing the latter should grab their tablet and dive into the settings to see if the update is ready for their specific device.

And just in case you come back with an already up to date message — remember these types of updates generally roll out in batches, which really just means you likely still have a few days of waiting left.
