In search of a 12-13 inch tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio
#1
Hi all.

I'm looking for a 12 - 13 inch tablet with a 4:3 aspect ratio. I've been going through these threads and through google searches for days now and still haven't been able to find a large tablet with the 4:3 aspect ratio that is still available to buy new (in the US) or isn't close to a $1,000. Is anyone using the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 or 4? The aspect ratio is 3:2 and I don't know if the difference between that and 4:3 is anything to be concerned with. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. I can't find whether the Good E-reader has bluetooth capability, though. Or whether they're 4:3 aspect ratio. I'm guessing they are but would need to know for sure. And it would be good to have reviews from others. I'm picky, I know.

They are using all same 13.3" E ink Mobius display of 1600x1200 resolution which has 4:3 ratio.
Sadly:
Netronix/GoodEreader has touch screen (including stilus) but has NO Bluetooth.
Onyx Max has Bluetooth but has NO touch screen (stilus only).
Sony DPT-S1 has NO Android and NO Bluetooth.
So I'm still waiting...

I'm still happy with my Hannspree and Apzen (I like Hanspree a little better).  Stylus does not work great. (and I don't use with bluetooth pedal).  But, I would rather get two tablets (for the price) and always have a backup.  (These are Not E-Readers).

Thank you Jeff. Is the Azpen 4:3? The Hanspree isn't available in the US and although I found it on ebay I'd rather get it from somewhere I can return it if there are any glitches in it. I see that the Azpen site does have it on sale right now so I'll look into it.

I think neither are 4/3 (they are 16/10?).  But, it has not bothered me (especially with the cropping option Mike provides in MS).

The big benefit to me is, if you can get them cheap enough, you can get two.  To me having two tablets (with one as back-up) is tremendous peace of mind.  It is worth more than the amenities of a more expensive tablet (and sometime the more expensive tablets have issues too).  I think many of the weaknesses of a cheaper tablet (not as detailed picture, viewing angles, weak sound, etc) are not that important for this use.

There are probably other inexpensive 13 inch tablets to consider.  Just my $.02 for what its worth.

Well, it looks good. Yes, I hope that it has bluetooth capabilities also. And that it's available in the US.
