the ideal tablet for MobileSheetsPro
At the moment you get reasonable refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2" tablets, at least in Germany, for some 200 - 220 EUR each. Due to the different form factor compared to 13.3" (like the HannSpree) a normal score sheet is displayed quite well: if you rigidly cut the borders you come out almost with the same visual size as a real DIN A4 sheet (which is quite popular as score sheet form factor over here). Okay, the Android is a bit outdated (5.0.2), but for the limited application discussed here it works near to perfect

I'm presently in the process to create a two-paged, plywood covered pseudo-book from two of them (after obtaining another one as Xmas gift Wink  in addition to my 1st one, used in vertical scroll mode so far).

Cheers,
Petra

Well, I'd like to report completion, and show you the result, so you may even improve it for your own purposes. Wink 

My plywood construction is (mostly) finished (just the magnetic snap lock is not yet in place) - see attached images.

Main view:
   

Some features:

# Tablets attached to the wooden lids by velcro tape: Tablets remain removable, in case of a drop the non-rigid mounting will feather the high-G accelerations when the whole construct hits on something solid. To support this feature, the frame does not fit snugly but leaves about 1-2 mm space around the tablets for the velcro to do its job.

# Frame completely around: If it drops, there will be no sharp edges the tablets themselves may hit

# Press-through holes to press the tablets back out of the frame and their velcro fixations if they need to be detached

# All switches are accessible; additional holes to pull out the s-pens of each tablet from their bays with a fingernail.

# Both tablets can be charged simultaneously while holder is closed or opened.

# Distance between the screens so as to allow for an intermediate soft buffering inlay while transporting.

# Total thickness about 37 mm (with each single tablet responsible for about 10-11 mm already)

# Low relative weight addition (still have to check), compared to the own weight of the two tablets.

Cheers,
Petra

That's really slick! Thanks for sharing that Petra!

I also had made a plywood stand to bring my Samsung 12.2 Galaxy Pro closer so I can read the screen with regular reading glasses. Because I travel with the keyboard, I made the holder collapsible. Unfortunately my tablet has frozen in the 'Boot' mode so I'm wondering if it's time for a replacement, so I may need to modify the new holder if I replace the 12.2 with a different make. (I'm currently in Sarasota FL, and have not located a local repair tech who can fix it.)
Samsung wants about $80 to have it shipped and checked, with no guarantees that it will work again. 
I'm trying to use a HP 14 Stream Win 10 laptop, but have not got all the kinks out. I got the pedal page turner recognized by MSP, but not the midi link. I play a Korg PA600 and getting the midi link with the keyboard's Songbook is part of MSP's attraction. 
I installed Korg's midi driver for Win 10. but so far nothing is talking. Have I missed a step? Also the laptop's portrait orientation seems to come & go, so I'm looking for another tablet that does as well 
as the Samsung did.

Just to come back to a still open bit of information:

It is 2250 g in total, with the two tablets responsible for 1500 g already.

My last paper collection with only a fraction of the present electronic score sheets was already at 3500+ g, so the full-fledged electronic version it is already a real plus - or minus, weight-wise, of course.  Tongue
