Recommend me a tablet for PE please
We are a large secondary and are looking to purchase for all PE teachers a tablet so that they can take it out on the field or use in the gym to video record or take still pictures of the students doing things then instantly give them feedback on the device.
Needed therefore are good camera with decent anti-glare screen.
I personally think for this iPads are overkill but don't know the market place well enough to suggest something else..
Any ideas appreciated.

Would say Nexus 7. Big enough to use but small enough to do so easily, especially outdoors. Sturdy enough too. You could also add some functionality - how about using them for registers if you have the capability via your VLE or MIS directly. There's plenty of 7" tablets around, many you can get for under £100 but it's hard to vouch the quality of anything with a SumVision badge on over the Nexus.

I recently recommended the ipod touch, 1080p video, can see in direct sunlight, fits in a pocket. You can lock them down and add wifi, deploy apps, lock to a single app.
EDIT: Removed exchange comment... Can't remember if they do infact connect to exchange.

The Nexus 7 would be limited by having only one camera on the same side as the screen.

I didn't think steroids came in tablet form? I though injections only?

does it? Now you come to mention it, I think you're right. Will have to play more with the one at work

Single camera on N7 would rule that out.
iPod is not a bad shout.

iPod would limit you. Look ahead, futureproof, GIVE them possibilities. Don't limit them horribly by going down the iAnything route. I'd actually suggest an 80 quid Sumvision android cackhead over an iPod.

Just to throw an alternative view in the ring, our PE department all have 10" netbooks which have an RDP link back to the TS box and Kodak PlaySport video cameras with 8GB SD cards in them. As the netbooks have an SD slot, they can edit their video and photos on the fly. Been like that for over a year now and I never see them

Samsung Galaxy tab has rear camera and is 159. Our Ipads are now unsupported after 2 years so no more apple for me.......... +1 for playsports
What Id really like is a samsung note - without the phone bit ( for £100)

Can I recommend dextrose tablets for PE.

Just bought an Acer Iconia W700 for PE. Full fat Windows, not Atom powered, cameras present (not sure what I'll use to record from them yet). More expensive than the iPad they wanted, but we needed it to work with SIMS.net and be a useable laptop too.
