Right now I run RC3 on my phone using a Remote Desktop app called TeamViewer. It's free and works well. I haven't tried it using a tablet but I would think that will work extremely well. Just have to leave your laptop on at home.
Something that may be worth looking at is Xamarin
. I am contemplating redoing my hobby app
to see how well it works.
Not sure how much income is generated, but it's $100 to become a developer for iOS and WP8. $25 to get your Android to the store. Plus you'll have to get a couple of Apple devices for development and testing. And some Android devices. So you'll be out a lot of money for unknown amount of sales.
Word of warning about iOS is that Apple *frequently* breaks their own APIs and change UI behavior, so once you have made an iOS app, expect to update it whenever they update iOS. And when you update you'll be forced to update xcode and maybe even osx etc etc.
iOS is also very restrictive about what you're allowed to touch, i.e. doing anything over USB is a big nono. Which is why you see companies like Tekin having Android only support. It's not that Tekin can't do it, it's because Apple won't let them.
There are lots of 7" android devices for <$100 (a couple of the guys at the track use them with my app no problem). And you can run tekin app on them as well, load it up with PDFs etc. But how does your program work at 7"?
No matter what, it'll be a lot of work... and for anything on iOS and xcode... frustration...
