    Good Day All:

    I am hoping that I can use a tablet as a display for arduinos (small programmable devices). I would like to connect the tablet and arduino using a hardwired usb connection. It is very easy to send data to a pc from an arduino via usb, so I am hoping that I can do the same with a tablet.

    The pc applications that I have written for this purpose are programmed using Python. It would be really nice to be able to program my aps for tablets using Python too.

    My PC aps are simple and just run in a terminal window (I use Debian on my GNU/Linux computers).

    So, my questions are:

    1) Can the usb serial port be easily accessed on android tablets?
    2) Can I program aps for android tablets in Python?
    3) Can I just open a terminal window and start a program like in PC Linux?

    That's it for starters. If you know of good examples of similar applications could you direct me to them?

    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum

    All the Android tablets I am aware of don't have the ability to tale input to the display from anything more than a mass storage device. I don't think you will be able to use it as an input display for anything, only as an output device.
