New York State's 52,000 inmates will soon be getting tablets.

The New York State Department of Corrections plans to provide them for those incarcerated so they can buy e-books, music and access educational materials.
 
They'll also be able to communicate with family and friends through a specially regulated email system. They will not be able to get internet access though.
 
Officials say the tablets are provided by the company "JPay" free of charge as a way to help them re-integrate into society once they get out of prison.
