Pandora has updated its Android app with a new design specifically for tablets. Aside from offering an interface made for a larger display, Pandora 5.0 for tablets retains most of the features the smaller-screen version currently offers, with more details for stations available to read, lyrics and artist information, and improved social sharing.

Verizon plans Ellipsis seven-inch tablet, claims leaks
Verizon is preparing to release a tablet before the end of this year, though not necessarily the one teased in a video late last month. A combination of a trademark filing spotted by FierceCable and a leaked render of an Android tablet from @evleaks have surfaced in quick succession, strongly suggesting it will be called the Ellipsis and will have a seven-inch display. Other details, such as specifications, release date, and price, have yet to be revealed.
