Positioning itself where other tablet manufacturers falter, the Earl Backcountry Survival Tablet is the ultimate 21st century tool for innovating outdoorsmen. Its design is specific to the wilderness in which cellular towers and electricity are not required to provide nearly full functionality. Rather this piece of hardware can run off its integrated solar panel, just as long as you stay out of the shade for extended periods of time. Additional specs include a 1024×768 6″ flexible E-Ink screen with the ability to double as an emergency lantern; a built-in AM/FM/SW/LW radio tuner; IP67 rated water/dust/shock/mud-proof construction, internal weather sensors; a FRS, GMRS and MURS transceiver for use as a two-way radio; and a glove-friendly infrared touchscreen. The list of features continues with GPS tracking, Bluetooth 4.0, and Android’s 4.1 operating system. As the Earl Backcountry Survival Tablet looks for crowd funding investors here, prospective backers have been granted the opportunity to purchase the extreme tablet for $249 USD through June 9.
