NeRD_Device_and_Case050814“The U.S. Navy will soon supply its submariners with a new e-reader — the Navy eReader Device, or NeRD. The NeRD, by Findaway, comes with a library of 300 titles, including fiction from Tom Clancy and James Patterson, as well as classics and naval history. The NeRD is designed to thwart security concerns raised by cameras, network connectivity and data transferability on regular e-readers and tablets.”

Apparently Findaway World has supplied audiobooks to the military since 2007. Makes me think of Len Edgerly’s Ebooks for troops organization.
