Android vs Windows
#11
It's overkill to view PDFs/use MobileSheets with Windows?

I am a double bass player, so I need to be a little further than most musicians from my music stand... I first bought a 15.6'' 2-in-1 laptop used in portrait mode, but it was still too small!
The only bigger 2-in-1 touchscreen I found on the market was Dell Inspiron 17-7778, and that was before the Windows version of Mobilesheets so I had to run it in Android emulation mode!
I now use a 21.5'' Viewsonic touch monitor as a dual-page display (Lansdscape mode), mounted on a modified tripod stand, with a Zotac mini-computer as the system's brain...
That could not be possible with Android!
Samsung has a discontinued 18'' tablet but it doesn't operate in portrait mode, too small for dual-page display in Landscape and no VESA option to hook it up on a music stand!

Samsung is going to release new version in Q1 of 2019:

Did you ever try rotation control apps?

Of course it is possible with USB-C Android phones/tablets to connect to external monitor:

Thanks for all those answers, but my problem with the Samsung View was mainly that it would not be safe to sit it on its left/right sides on a music stand, and no VESA option either to hook it up on a tripod monitor stand.
There is 18'' USB-C monitors on the market that would look well on a music stand, but then they are no Touch input, and when there is, they're only 15.6'', have a poor contrast ratio and are very pricy!
I could not see how I could have those monitors hooked on a cellphone or tablet with the touchscreen function enabled.
All IPads Pro, Surface Pro and Gvido systems of this world can't pair with my 17.3'' Inspiron 2:1 except for the weight and power autonomy, so for me the next thing upscale was to hook a 21.5'' touchscreen by VESA and a mini-computer on a monitor stand... with some custom work for the wiring and transportation issues.

I have also considered AIO systems that can be dual-page with touch function, but again there were issues with design, weight, price, power and transportation.
My system is under 1K$, but with countless hours of researches and handwork.

But thanks anyways, it's good to share community information and hopefully in the future some companies will go in developement and marketing for more interesting systems!
