HP Pro Slate 12 vs Paper Music
OMG, you guys! It's SO BIG!
On the left is the Peters edition of the Bach Solo Cello Suites for viola and on the right is the Virtual Sheet Music edition of the same piece on the HP Pro Slate 12. Yes, that's the whole page displayed, no lines cut off the bottom. The music is actually bigger on the tablet because it's designed to be printed on 8.5x11 paper and the Peters edition is in a slightly larger than 8.5x11 book. (The tablet is actually about the same thickness as the book too.)
In fact the tablet, minus the speaker grills at the top and bottom, is almost exactly 8.5x11. The bezels are about what you'd expect decent margins to be, so the resulting image should be just about the same size as if it were on 8.5x11 paper.
It's basically awesome.
The pen has some quirks, as does Android as a sheet music solution (more on that soon), but for now, I'm really enjoying this tablet.
