Tablet in place of a Projector

I’m writing to ask your opinion on an idea. I was at a regional conference last week and several presenters used iPads / tablets to run their presentation. One presenter held up her tablet to display a listening map as the music was being played by iTunes. My classroom is a converted rectangle storage room, so there’s no projector. I was thinking that a tablet might allow me to show videos and long-ish listening maps to an entire class. I have tons of ideas.
What are your thoughts on this idea? A friend was doubtful that an entire class would be able to see what’s on the screen. I was thinking I would need a tablet 10″ in size.
If you only have money to buy one item (tablet or projector) I would opt for the projector. It can be paired with a computer or laptop an will certainly allow everyone to see. You can store it on a cart and only get it out as needed. If you project onto a whiteboard, you can have the illusion of an interactive whiteboard and “draw” on your images or annotate music. I think a projector would be a better use of the money.
I have a teacher ipad that I use everyday, but not for classroom activities. I use it as a remote control for my laptop and mostly for creating lessons in Educreations or MadLip.
I agree with am castle and you need to get a projector. You can not only use it for class, but it can be used for programs as well.
