Being a public speaker and a teacher, which tablet will be appropriate as per my needs?

by BlessedMK / November 16, 2012 5:36 AM PST

I need a tablet/tablet pc for myself but I'm confused about different brand products, hence need your help.
My main requirements are:
1. To make presentations and notes on the go.
2. To connect it to a projector, both wired and wirelessly.
3. For e-book reading.
4. 3G enabled.
5. Don't need useless apps and stuff, but things that a public speaker and a teacher needs.
6. Cost effectiveness preferred.
As I'll be buying it from the U.S. but will use it in India most of the times, so please recommend accordingly.
Looking forward anxiously for your replies. Thanks!

My brother does most if not all that on an iPad. I'm not a sales person and if they don't answer your questions, keep shopping.

In reply to: iPad.

Which Ipad would you recommend?
Does Ipad- 2, 3 or 4 generation has any difference as far as my requiremets are concerned?
I'd like you to give your word on galaxy tab 2, galaxy note tab, nexus 7 and 10 as well when compared to an Ipad.

I can't see any to avoid except iPad 1. At the office we do some Android work so we know the units fairly well but from our work. We can't use the iPad for our apps for a small reason so I don't use the iPad more than a few minutes a month.

As to the Nexus 7 that will be in my hands next week. But some of the things you ask for will require apps. From what my brother does I can say that the iPad will do all you listed but I can't write a paragraph describing the need app, connection and setup. My thought here is that Apple should do that for you to make the sale.

When it comes to the Android systems we are faced with a diverse hardware ecosystem and we get to cobble together an app and what is needed to make the system work. I have yet to see any maker tackle what you listed as well as Apple.
