Verizon today announced a new tablet available for purchase, the Ellipsis 10. The tablet originally surfaced on Twitter in early October, indicating that Verizon could be launching yet another self-branded Android tablet before the end of the year, and as it turns out, the rumors were true.
At IFA 2015, Acer inserted itself into the conversation as a go-to for mobile gaming. The company’s Predator 8, like NVIDIA’s SHIELD Tablet, is all about maximizing gaming on a tablet. With an 8-inch Full HD (1920×1080) display, Intel Atom processor, and four front-facing speakers, Acer believes it has a winning formula. But like any mobile device, price is very important. Acer seems to have appropriately priced the Predator 8, with the 32GB model going for $299. And starting today you can pre-order that model of the tablet from Newegg.
The online electronics retailer will be the exclusive seller of the Predator 8 for these next two weeks. Newegg doesn’t have the 64GB model listed on its site at the moment.

I’m sure that owners of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition will understand where I’m coming from seeing as that device has languished on Android 4.4.2 KitKat since its launch (unless you had the T-Mobile variant). There is cause to rejoice for some, though, because the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update is finally available to download for the SM-P600 (WiFi) variant. Read more
