Which Tablet, Tethered Shooting?


I am not sure which of the forums this fits into.   I like to use tethered shooting, and so far have only done that using a windows laptop.   I am reading a bunch about people starting to use an iPad or Android tablet, using wifi, and then using a camera side adapter like CamRanger or iUSBport-Camera.

I have decided to purchase a 10 inch Android tablet.  My criteria was;

High Resolution bright screen.

Micro-SD card slot for more memory.

No Apple DRM and being forced to use iTunes to move photos.

New hardware "this year" with the latest specs, speeds.

That seems to leave only 2 real choices this month and next;

A.  The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition - Already shipping.

B.   Google Nexus 10, 2nd edition  -  Rumored to announce this month.

I went and looked over the Galaxy Note 10.1 at Best Buy.  The screen is very nice, but I can not tell if it is the best (or even IPS).    Brightness varies a little when angled off axis, but I could not see color shift.  This Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition seems like the best 10 inch Android tablet on the market this month.   I am looking for feedback, experiences, cautions with regard to this choice, and in general using a tablet for tethering?

Is anyone else using CamRanger and a tablet?   What has your experience been?

Is there anything I should know about Tablet screen adjustment, color, etc, or is it just good enough for the task?
