Earl - the outdoors tablet - New startup
Thought this was interesting, a new startup is bringing out an outdoors tablet which, unlike other ruggedtablets, is actually fully featured to work in an outdoors environment. Comes complete with e-ink screen and ANT+ (heart rate monitor), GPS, weather sensors, Radio receiver and walkie talkie support
Certianly looks interesting and since it also has Google Play (I emailed the company and they confirmed) then it can also have various Android reading apps/mapping apps etc.
If you order before June 9th then it only costs $299 + $20 postage, worth a punt on a credit card I feel
