Going on from this. I am looking at a tablet for use aboard RIBs/Boats.

I like the I pads and have found a waterproof and shockproof case as seen in images. Before I commit, do any others offer a similar waterproofing/shock proofing on other makes of tablets.

May develop these for use on Treasure Hunts aboard boats for clients,

so anyone other ideas of tablets? Waterproof bags are OK but are not strong

In my opinion the best tablets are iPad, iPad mini or Nexus7. I guess it will be fairly easy to get waterproof cases for all those as they are all very popular devices.
