Does the tablet have a VGA input port and can it act as a monitor or
are you asking about using it as a virtual second monitor? If the
latter, you can probably play with xdmx assuming you can get an
xserver running on the tablet, however, there's no real official
solution that I know of. Anything will basically be a hack.
