Default Snake River Correctional has tablets!

I just heard from a friend that Snake River now has tablets. Cost of use is $0.03/minute or $0.06/minute depending on what you're doing on it. Not sure if they're bought or rented, or what the cost is. Pretty certain it'll be an incentive item.

I'll update when I have more info.

They had them at Santiam. He used to go to the kiosk and type out the message then save to draft. Then go to tablet and send the draft it was cheaper than the .25 to send a mess on the kiosk. The tablets are good until people start hiding them while they are at work etc. then there can be "tablet wars".

My son is at EOCI and he said that Friday their unit received 15 tablets to use among the 70 men in his unit.

Just talked to my son and the tablet dropped on the cement cell floor and cracked the screen. It's going to cost him $50.00. Guards told him they knew screens were going to be a problem. They need to stick those tablets in tough protectors. My son said he won't use a tablet again.

In case anyone is wondering: they are not for sale, nor are they an incentive item. They are checked out sort of like library books, then returned.
