There are some inexpensive 7- to 11-inch tablets running Windows.
I use some for my SDR receivers as part of my portable satellite
stations. There are more software options for Windows than iOS or Android.
I have HP and WinBook tablets with Windows 10, which started with
Windows 8.1, that work with a FUNcube Dongle Pro+ and SDRplay SDR
receivers. I normally use HDSDR with the SDR receivers , but there are
other programs you can run. I haven't done packet on the tablets, but
that's on the perpetual to-do list.
