For a home project I'm looking for a device which will only ever show a web page, mounted on a wall.
I could buy a cheap tablet for that, but I don't like the idea of having a device connected to a charger 24/7, when it was designed to only be charged occasionally. Are there any devices out there which are low cost and designed to be connected to power to work?
Other aspects I'm looking for, of varying importance:
- 7-10 inch screen (color required, but high resolution not important)
- Screen can be set up to turn on/off at given times and stay on for hours at a time.
- Can be set up to boot to a web page by default.
- Ideally the page should show, but a user cannot access anything else without authenticating.
- I wouldn't mind a touch screen, but that's not at all important.
