Prisoners get armored, see-through tablets for videoconferencing and other apps
We've already seen a bunch of buzzworthy new tech toys in 2015, including the Apple Watch and the DJI Drone. But for many prison inmates, the most exciting digital release of the year arrives this month.
That's when JPay will ship its latest tablet, the JP5mini. Though the 4.3-inch device can't compare with something like the iPad, this latest version of JPay's prison-optimized gadget promises a slew of improvements -- including an app store and wireless capabilities -- that signal the changing technical landscape in America's correctional facilities.
"This is what's going to replace phones eventually," JPay founder Ryan Shapiro told Yahoo Tech. "There are going to be major changes within the prison system environment because of this technology."
