Reddit: Smallest tails laptop with LTE/4g built in?

Tuesday 7th of February 2017 12:23:49 AM

Hi, I'm trying to find something that I can carry with me specifically to handle sensitive, encrypted data that I don't want on my iOS or Android device. Basically, something like a BlackBerry that is encrypted (but not a closed-system like blackberry). I would just like to run tails to read and send emails and view their attachments. Basically nothing else except some light web-browsing.

I know Lenovo has a few models with LTE built in, but I'm not really looking for another laptop. Unless it was tiny. Like those old Dell Mini 9, I just need a sim slot for my carrier and I'm in business. I'm not really looking for any phones or tablets, because you rarely have root access to those devices. I need encryption to be on for the entire drive, and everything going in/out.

I know you can get Raspberry Pi boards with LTE on board, so that could possibly be another path?s

Thanks for any help or advice. The limit, budget-wise, is around $2000.
