Hey, I saw that Google released a 12.3" tablet for only $799. I love my Pixel phone... Has anyone tried this tablet yet? Seems like it would be pretty sweet for music reading and is significantly cheaper than the equivalent Apple product.

Does it have a pencil? When I was using my iPad I found marking up difficult since one’s finger isn’t a precision pointing device and it covers what one wants to mark up.

That's one of the reasons I bought the Samsung 10" tablet (S3?). It came with a pen, which is awesome for marking up scores.

Looks like the Pixel charges you $100 for the pen. Yikes. Nickels and dimes, nickels and dimes...

I bought a very cheap pencil for my iPad Pro. Works great. I use it to mark my music in ForScore.

The Apple Pencil is around $100. Beware ! There is an "old generation" which I have for my original iPad Pro, and a new generation of iPad Pro's and matching Apply Pencils. Be sure they go together !

I also bought a cheaper ($50 ?) wireless pen that also uses bluetooth, for use with Forscore on an iPad Air. It works, but it not as precise as the Apple Pencil.
