    I am ready to develop a visualisation on a tablet with a view to mounting it on a wall. Can anyone recommend a non-apple tablet that has worked well for them in this application? I am considering the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 which is about $350 on Kogan...thanks

    I do mine with my Lenovo A701 it was on runout recently at most retailers and the next model is coming. Its designed to be a smart speaker/tablet hybrid with built in kickstand.

    Its great for on-site music streaming and has Google assistant built in so I can do Homebridge testing from it too.

    Downside, it’s firmware hasn’t seen any love for a while and it’s next firmware is scheduled for Q1 2021.
