The 6 inch flexible E-ink screen features a built-in AM/FM/SW/LW radio tuner, internal weather sensors, FRS, GMRS and MURS transceiver for use as a two-way radio, and can even be used as an emergency lantern to light up dark areas.

The survival tablet will hitting the retail scene on June 9th with a price tag of $249.
