The key, at least for me, is finding a no name Android tablet w/ the basics that runs Android 7 or above at that $50 to $75 price point.

I think if I was in need of a portable vt100 terminal I’d use either my Raspad (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/35410622/raspad-raspberry-pi-tablet-for-your-creative-proje/posts) for full out Geek mode or (far more reliable) a small Chromebook as long as I can get a serial to USB adapter to work. Chromebooks have long battery life and are reasonably cheap. Also come in various sizes (my current one is a 15” as I need a large screen to see things…).
