Users should have the RIGHT TO DONATE their SMARTPHONES and TABLETS for use in LIFE SAVING EQUIPMENT, instead of their FULLY FUNCTIONAL DEVICES being SHREDDED.
Examples of how Smartphones and Tablets can be Re-purposed are:
As the Embedded Controller for a Ventilator;
As a Coronavirus Detection and Test station for deployment remotely, on the roadside, in
Hospitals, and in the home;
As a low cost Nurse Station for Hospitals, and in Intensive Care Units.
Invite Apple, Google, Samsung, Huawei etc. to update their firmware so that users can choose to Re-purpose their Phones and Tablets at the end of the warranty period.
This modification would take less than one day of programmer time per product line.
