Electronic Readers in Prison?

I have an acquaintance who may become a guest of the state for the next 5 to 10 years. When not engaged in other pursuits he is a very avid reader. Now he will have even more time to read. I would like to give him a nice going away gift. Probably the Sony or the Cybook. Maybe even a Kindle but I am not sure if he can get WiFi connection in his cell. Does anyone know if electronic readers are allowed in prison?

Depends on the prison, some allow radios and tvs, mp3 players, some don't allow any electronics. You need to find out where they are going

He is very unlikely to get WiFi access.

The Kindle uses mobile phone network to download the files. Each prison has a device that disrupts the mobile network inside the institution, to prevent inmates from using smuggled-in mobile (cellular) phones.

You also need to figure out how to get him new books for his device. Perhaps a memory card with books inside a parcel sent to the prison. Be sure to check beforehand what is allowed to put into a regular mail for an inmate - so you do not create a problem for him.
