Suggestions for Tablet to show videos in Ministry


Recommended Posts

I have not found a tablet I'm happy with that has good sound quality for showing videos at the door in the Ministry. I have bought an external speaker but it can be cumbersome. I would like suggestions for either a tablet (android preferred) or external speaker. Thank You.

There is a rumour that Apple will be releasing a new iPad this month at c. $259.

A benefit of JWLibrary on iPads is the 4/3 aspect ratio. Most Android tablets being widescreen. For me anyway. :)

Can you buy Huawei tablets in the US?

 

My current tablet is a Huawei MediaPad M2 10 inch, and the loadspeakers are really loud and sound quality is quite good too. With this tablet I can show videos at a door and even in the street and they can be heard without problem. Besides, its performance is more than enough for JW Library and every app I use.

 

There is more recent model, the MediaPad M3, that is quite similar but with better specifications. And regarding price it's in the mid range.

Just wanted to say thanks for the suggestion. I got the m3 8“ and I am very happy with it.

It will be interesting to hear of any reports of ministry usage with the new (just announced) 9.7” iPad. Just 2 speakers again, and the screen won’t be as good in bright sunlight as the “Pro” model. But it supports the Pencil this time, for those that need it. (Tho’ the Pencil is still overpriced imho.)

 

I think if I needed a replacement Android tablet I would seriously consider a Huawei model. They seem to make some good stuff.

One brother here has small Bluetooth wireless battery powered speakers that clip to his belt.
The sound is much louder that the built-in speakers.
Hope this helps.
