This should help.

Also search a few threads about scanning (resolution etc.) if that is what you are doing, or make some estimates of your PDFs, and then how many pages you will eventually have.

Hi all. I'm in the midst of researching a tablet and this is all very helpful. I'm leaning toward a 13" tablet but I have some concerns. I play both in dark rooms and well lit rooms, so brightness is important. All of the 13" tabs seem to be 1280x800 and there have been comments online about the lack of resolution in these and in some cases concern about brightness. On the other hand, a better screen at 10.1" is an alternative, but would I regret the smaller screen size? There are users of both on this site and any thoughts would be very helpful.

Thanks

My tablet has a resolution of 1280x800 and this has proved more than adequate for the purpose actually, it's fine videos as well).

MS has a 'reverse colours' option, so you would get (normally) white dots on a black screen. I use this option most of the time, it reduces the glare in dark rooms and is more comfortable to view.

My opinion is you would definitely regret not getting the larger size.

Thanks Graeme. Is your tablet bright enough in well lit rooms? Also, does it have bluetooth? None of the specs I've found show that it has it.

No problem is a brightly lit room. Although I haven't needed to try it, I suspect it would be OK in daylight (although I suspect direct sunlight would be pushing it a bit too far).

It does have BT, although I don't use it. I prefer to use a wired USB pedal - one thing less to go wrong Smile .

I'm using the Archos familypad2. I picked up a cheapo foot pedal for $10 bucks... and I love this setup. Archos tech support has been great. I keep my tablet in a pelican 1085 case and just throw it in my trunk. On breaks, I just take the familypad off my music stand and put it in the pelican case. I've got all the real books and the books of a couple of bands I play in on it. Kind of a pain at first to scan it all in.. but it has really paid off.

LOVE IT!

So, considering 50% of my users are using tablets identified as "other", it would be useful to know what those actually are Smile

I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 with Wifi+3G and am quite happy with it.
I am not really using 3G - and for me, 10'' is a little bit too small - maybe I will switch to a 13.3'' tablet although they are really rare....

That is good to know the Archos familypad2 works well. That could be the "go to" tablet. I guess I would prefer 16gb memory just to be safe.

I am pretty happy with my Toshiba Excite 13 (off the market?). But, definitely want a 13 inch screen.

Maybe I will pick that up as a back up at some point.

Maybe an online survey would be more analyzable than many posts in a forum.
Do you want to open a survey with one of the many portals?
Relevant required data could be: type, size (inches), display (e.g. 1280x800), Android version, ...

Another way of collecting this data would be a wiki.

Or just another would be an enhancement of the software itself. In the "About" section of the configuration you have an "email to support". You also could place a "send system data" with an explanation text what data you want to send and why.
