    Hope they do road maps for this too. Motorbike GPS heaven (where regular screens made unreadable by sun)

    Earl is a solar powered Android tab aimed at survivalists
    Slightly misleading headline - I was expecting some ruggedised 'droid gear with useful features like a shotgun mount, and in built apps like "Guard Scheduler", "Food Stocks Tracker", "Armageddon Forecaster" and "Special Forces Survival Guide". And "Duelling Banjos" as the default notification tone.

    A ruggedised, inexpensive device would get my vote too - something easily pocketable, which means 7" screen or less.

    I've been "devolved" ... does it show?

    I wonder if they'll make a version that has those new batteries that were recently developed.
