Default Questions about Tablets in Federal facilities

My husband is at FCI Loretto and rumors are afloat that they will be getting tablets soon. I anyone on here with a loved one in a Federal facility that has received tablets and can share info (cost, usability, features)?
Thank you.

Hi there I have moved your question to our federal forum so our members with loved ones in federal facilities can assist you.

Welcome to Prison Talk. I hope you receive answers from members in any federal prison that is allowing inmates to have computers/tablets.

I'd expect GTL or Securus or whoever would be providing them to have a news release on their web site if that's going to happen.

Here's a random DOJ blurb from last year:
Launching a tablet-based pilot program for inmate education. BOP is launching a pilot program to determine the feasibility of a “blended” education model that combines classroom instruction with online education (provided through tablets customized for the prison environment). Similar pilots have been successfully launched in Ohio and California. The pilot program will be rolled out at two prisons in early 2017 and will be expanded to additional sites in future years. BOP is currently reviewing bids from vendors to provide the necessary hardware and software for the pilot program.
They'd have to post it to fedbizopps.gov if they were going to award a contract. Blessed if I can figure out how to search that site.
I'm collecting Best of PTO posts and quotes in my blog here.
