Have you ever used one of these Windows (M$ only guy here grin) tablet pcs for reading music?

Is a 10.1 inch screen size adequate? Or should it be 11.6 inch?

How is page turning managed?

If used at a 2 piano recital, can a single page turner (with a third tablet) remotely turn the pages simultaneously for the two tablets of both pianists?

Hmm.. I haven't heard of any software that could do that ( remotely turn pages on another computer). Although I haven't done alot of research on such software. I would assume there would have to be a wifi connection so you could access the other computers remotely at the least.

I saw a well-known concert pianist recently using a tablet to play from - he had a remote controller pad that he placed beside his left foot, which he stepped on when he wanted to 'turn the page' of the score. Obviously he couldn't operate the una corda pedal at the same time, but he's obviously practised using it very well, and it was totally unobtrusive.

I'd guess most of the audience didn't know how he 'turned the pages'.

Not exactly answering your question, but just why would one want to?

Tablet plus Airturn worth it?
