Default Tablets?

Friend at CIW says they'll be able to get some sort of tablet computer starting next year; anyone know anything about that? I know JPay has the JP-4 and JP-5 and that several states are using those sorts of things for media playback (like Oregon's Music Warden kiosks and MP3 payers, and the federal email system etc), so it's not *impossible* Cali is rolling this out. But I don't see anything at any of the special package vendors...

I have heard the same thing as well. I am on the Inmate Family Council @ CIW and I will check into it. I know the women are excited about it as well. I am hoping that it is not coming from ROY (Rumor on the Yard)!! As soon as I know anything I will let you know OK!!

OK!! Thanks! When I mentioned reading books on my ipad and watching TV shows on my phone I've Netflix she was like, "I am so far behind in technology!" (she's been own since 2007, a lot has changed.) getting up to speed with [something approximating] modern tech before release can't hurt!!
