A few updates on the Motion Computing LE1600. The LE1600 has been shipping now (at least the ones we get off lease from ITS.Photo) with a 60gb drive and 1.5 gig of memory.
I've tried using a stylus on the LE1600 and my finger on my other touch HP tablet and it is just too difficult to get good navigation while standing and performing. I find that a "Bluetooth" mouse works much better along side the tablet on a music stand.
I used to use a Mic stand holder, but went back to a music stand after a holiday accident knocked my LE1600 off the mic stand holder onto the floor, cracking the glass, requiring the purchase of another refurbed backup unit.
The repair costs more than a used/refurb off of ebay.
I ended up buying one of the LE1600 Motion Tablets from IT.Photo, on ebay. It should be arriving any day now and I'm anxious to put it to use.
As a side note (because this is a "Bose L1" site), my original Bose L1 + one B1 that I purchased in December of 2004 are still going strong. I had to send the B1 back to Bose for a warranty repair. Their service was simply awesome!
I've since added another B1 + T1. I should have bought the T1 when they first came out. All I've got to say is that it works for me.
An old thread, but my point is probably relevant to anyone who's contributed. Just thought I'd mention the Binder 2 app for Mac. It's available from the Mac App store and will work on a Mac laptop or iPad (Having checked with the author of the app, the software does not presently work on the iPad although as of a week or two ago, he said he was beginning the iPad version). If you store all your lyrics as PDFs, it will allow you to do predictive search (start typing name of song and it'll find the matches). It will then (and this is the kicker for me) play the relevant track in iTunes. This is ideal for one man outfits using backing tracks. For me it seems to be the holy grail. I've been moving over to it with my existing set and haven't gigged with it yet but I think it's a great app,
