For the outdoorsy geeks among us (the very rare breed they are) we have a nice new gadget for your collection of survival gadgets. The Backcountry tablet is a 6″ e-ink Android tablet capable of keeping you on track, and connected no matter where you end up.
Though its only a croundfunding campaign for now (get in line over here) we do know all the specs for you. This little guy has a 1024×768 resolution, is waterproof, works with gloves, has built-in solar panels, GPS, Bluetooth, FRS and GMRS for voice / text as well as whether sensors to help you decide when to turn back or pitch tent. Honestly this is a cool pice of tech for $250 I think any avid camper or hiker should give it a look.
