iPads in Space?

If you watch the live video from the Aquarius undersea habitat you can see that the NEEMO-15 crew are currently using tablet computers.

According to an interview I did a few minutes ago, NEEMO-15 crew member Astronaut Shannon Walker says that they use these tablet computers to track their mission tasks. Walker also said that there will be several tablet computers aboard the next Progress cargo flight to the International Space Station.

When asked, she was not able to say what brands of tablets would be going up.

I have asked NASA PAO if they can confirm the specific brands of tablet computers that will be flying.
