Nokia’s N810 Internet Tablet is a little bigger than the iPod Touch, but still pocketable–a characteristic that makes it perfect for use as a portable music-maker.
Dubwise, a member of the Internet Tablet Talk forums, uses his to operate the virtual dials and knobs of a Yamaha digital mixer.
“The resolution is perfect. All 20 faders fit onscreen, no scrolling. I’ve been mixing some simple shows from a seat in the audience. Even for the hands-on and chaotic shows, being able to tweak the balcony speakers from the balcony, and set the stage mix standing next to the musicians, is simply amazing.”
He uses a VNC client, which mirrors the target machine’s desktop and allows you to control its mouse, on the tablet.
