thatt with right dock
charge them without needing USB Cables
, so remaining water/moisture proof.
Screens are good and processsssors are fast.
One of these (I am typing this in a Bar on a Sony 10" tablet + Buetooth Keyboard) per family member
and maybe a spare (for flat battery
, forgot to charge etc.) can access all content, watch 1K video, play music
and answer emails, surf web if the connection is up to it or be used as display for those cameras or as GPS
Older generation units (look for Xperia Z2 TTablet) often are massively discounted (unlike Appple iPads which hold value 2nd handd nevver miind new but old generation and which also like water
as much Bowery Bum on a Drun and generally suck) and are neary as good as the latest and greatest.
So, ideally on-shore data crypt with remote
connect and sync to off-shore, off-shore data crypt with Cellnet Data and Shortwave SSB
data attachment and a bunch of Android tablets (plus kindles for thoose who want them) and you only miss the daily cat videos if you are honest.
