I have a first generation Asus Transformer (TF101) that I leave plugged in constantly. It is used as a digital picture frame and wall mounted home automation control panel. It is a bit aged at this point, but it does run Chrome (versus the default browser from a few years ago). My assumption is that Chrome will work for you, as I have very few problems ...

If you're willing to go for a little bit larger screen and no official support for Cyanogen, then you might like the Dell Venue 10 7000 ($499). It has: 10.5" screen (a bit larger than you wanted, but not by too much) Support for Android Lollipop 5.0 Good speakers, better than most Android tablets MicroSD card reader Optional magnetically attachable keyboard,...

A new tablet (versus my previous answer) is the Samsung Galaxy Tab. This is several years newer than the Transformer and faster. It is also thinner. When my Transformer became a wall fixture, this was the replacement I purchased. The Amazon review says that it comes with Honeycomb (3.0), but I assume that is outdated because mine arrived with Lollipop (5.0)....

I'll recommend the 16GB Nexus 7 (2013 model) at $130 from Amazon. It runs any version of Android; I believe current versions are shipping with Lollipop and can easily be upgraded to Marshmallow. It's got a 320 dpi IPS screen. Colors start darkening at about 30 degrees off-axis in all four directions (measured using the tablet's orientation sensor) and the ...

An alternative option, if you are willing to use something other than an android tablet, would be to use a Raspberry Pi. It can run for weeks without any problems It's very power efficient, since it lacks a bult-in display, battery, and a lot of the other hardware typically found on Android tablets It's cheap, with the cheapest model, the Pi Zero, costing ...

This does not answer your Question directly, but provides another approch: I would keep the current device and go with a solution wich cuts the 24/7 charge to some hours per day. This stops the overheating and you do not need to buy a new tablet. To do this I would buy a time switch, which is a device that switches a socket on and off based on the times you ...

I would recommend the Amazon Fire 10" Wi-Fi 16GB which starts at $179.99 but you may be able to find it cheaper. This features an HD display of 1280x800 and quoting from the Amazon website: Fire HD 10 features a widescreen 1280 x 800 high definition display with over a million pixels (149 ppi) for a bright, vivid picture. Enjoy a great viewing experience ...

The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro will be perfect for you. It only costs $699.99. Features it has: 3200 x 1800 display 13.3 inch screen Intel Core M CPU 256/512GB SSD Good battery life Backlit keyboard 8GB of RAM Another device that fits your price range is the HP Spectre x360. This is slightly more at $799.99 ($100 more than the Yoga 3 Pro). This is the major ...

This is a rather vague question, but I will do my best to answer it. A budget of $5000 will bring you a long way. My recommendation is a Microsoft Surface Book. Without knowing what the "same performance of standard notebooks" is I can almost guarantee that the this insanely powerful Tablet/Laptop hybrid will fit your needs. You could probably also play some ...

Update: Three different T-Mobile employees lied to me ("Any tablet that says 4G or LTE works"). After I got the tablet, I tried to use it with my sim card. It wouldn't work, so I called their support. They suddenly mention something about an IMEI number. I read the number off the device. They now tell me it won't work. Now I have a cheap, low-...

Nowadays, many tablets have the same, or more, performance than laptops.The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is a very good option for portability and performance. It has a beautiful screen, a powerful processor and a generally well built device.

The Kobo Aura H2o is what you need. its a pater proof e-reader with e-ink display and can survive 30 min in 1 meter deep water. It also has a hd display and supports almost all formats under the sun. I believe it's about 180 dollars. There is a case accessory that snaps off by the looks of it. This cover makes it so you don't stab the unit it self but the ...

Some time ago I've successfully installed Linux (ROSA R3) on the similar Acer ICONIA Tab W500. Currently there are Linux installations on 3 different ICONIA Tab W500, W501, W501P and W700 in the database. And there are no any information for other tablets you listed. So I can recommend you the Acer tablet. However please don't expect that all Linux ...

None. At this moment there is no phone or tablet which supports UHS-II. Of course you can put UHS-II card in normal slot because it's backward compatible but there is many opinions that this cards are working worse than UHS-I cards when they are in UHS-I slots.

For the best open tablets you will have to look at Replicant OS devices page. These are the most open devices that exist, however neither of the two tablets meet your requirements. You have two compelling alternatives however. One option, probably the fastest and most open, would be the Thinkpad X60 Tablet running Libreboot. It has a keyboard so it is ...

Summary £100 is a pretty tight constraint, so I won't be able to pull into too many bells and whistles into this recommendation. What I managed to get as a baseline along these three tablets is 32 eMMC internal storage and 2 gb of RAM. I've recommended products you could purchase today that should be available to you in the UK. The only differences between ...

There shouldn't be any issues with hotspots. As for Linux/windows connectivity it depends what do you wish to do with your device. If you only wish to transfer songs/videos/pics then it will be fine with Windows through iTunes since Apple has a version for Windows. With Linux it gets a bit tricky. There isn't a version of iTunes that Linux supports natively, ...

I have Wacom Intuos CTL-4100 tablet. I am using this with Xournal++ software (on ubuntu), works pretty well. It has pressure sensitivity. The main downside in my opinion is that as it is not touchscreen but essentially a trackpad, you have to watch your screen, not your hand while writing, and handwriting is a bit worse than on paper. But good enough for ...

This RCA Tablet usually costs around US$35 at Walmart. Not sure how much it would cost in your country, but the price is much lower than the one you quoted, so maybe it is worth a look. Its features: 7" screen Front camera Bluetooth Works with OTG adapter + USB LAN adapter (I tested it). 16GB storage + SD card Crazy cheap Works pretty well for the price ...

Preface This answer is likely more expensive than necessary for a dedicated device, but I'd see it as a justified purchase if you happen to also be in the market for a very usable and well built laptop. You may also be interested in looking into wireless displays that connect to your existing laptop/desktop and have the bluetooth pedals control that ...

This article linked below mentions that pressure sensitivity has been implemented in Android since API Level 5. I would see no reason why the S2 wouldn't have these features. http://pocketnow.com/2015/09/07/force-touch-android-has-had-that-for-years

In case it's of interest to anyone, I went with a Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen, 16 GB Wifi Tablet 10.1 Inch, and I am quite happy with the choice.

I did quite a bit of research on this issue and it seems that all the cables that you are looking at tend to be unreliable / don't work / only provide 1000ma. There are additional options that include rooting your device. After coming to the conclusion that they were not "GOOD" options I found the following. RavPower Filehub @ Amazon This product has ...

I'm going to argue that the Dell Latitude E6430 Laptop as refurbished by Newegg represents the perfect solution to your problem. First and foremost, this machine meets all of your hardware requirements - it has HDMI and VGA outs, and it has the graphical horsepower and resolution to cleanly and clearly display these presentations on both screens ...

I'm going to recommend the Lenovo Yoga P40. After looking at some other stuff from Dell that also offers wacom-style input, I was unable to really get a feel for whether or not certain models supported wacom input or not, so I can't recommend them. Some users appear to have gotten excellent results out of ~800 machines from Dell, but again - I can't be ...

Too long for a comment: Free/Open device-drivers/firmware for all (built-in) radios/chips. Very unlikley - the software driving baseband processors is part of certifications (see e.g. this SE post), which (depending on requirements) may be either virtually impossible with open-source, prohibitively expensive or just not viable because of the business ...

What does exactly "taking screenshots" mean? 1) You are using the tablet's camera while looking at the monitor, or 2) capturing the tablet's screen (so that the page is rendered on the tablet itself?). In the first case, you could be better off with different kind of hardware (e.g. raspberry Pi with PiCamera which you can program at will). In the ...

You might want to consider a windows tablet, or an aftermarket version of the android os if reliability is a concern. Stock android is susceptable to android bloat, faulty updates and the like. A panasonic toughpad might be something to look at, though it's definitely at the higher end of the spectrum.

The yoga tab 3's 480p screen would be a pain to watch on. A 480p screen at 10" size is already terrible (80 ppi). The 480p screen would be ok for stuff like video conferencing or a presentation but would be very terrible for movies. The ZTE SPro 2 has a much better quality projector (720p). This will have the same pixel density as the yoga tab 3 when at 20" (...
