Perhaps committing a crime and being sent to prison in Texas is not that bad.

 

Especially considering the Texas Department of Criminal Justice will begin distributing computer tablets,  along with chargers and earbuds, to 110-thousand inmates in October 2021.

 

The inmates are at 10 prisons in Texas.

 

The tablets will be preloaded with e-books, educational and religious materials. 

 

Inmates will also have radio apps, and can listen to pre-loaded music.  

They’ll even have the option to buy additional content for the tablets. 

 

And…they can send and receive e-mail, within 24-hours.
