Running STO on tablets?
 
I just bought a new Asus TF300T (1GB DDR3, 32GB Memory) tablet running the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Will STO run on my tablet, and how to I download it and/or install it? I'm a total noob when it comes to tablets. I do have the .exe for installing STO on my computer so if there's a way I can use it and/or transfer it to the tablet I should be able to do so with a little help here. Thanks...

It won't run on Android. Some high end Windows 8 tablets can handle it, though - GPU being the limiting factor, generally keeping you at/near minimum settings.

You could use a program like Kainy to try to stream it over a network from your PC - your PC runs it but the tablet displays and controls it. It needs a powerful network, and is pretty much a lost cause if you're not on your home network (that kind of real time streaming is too much for most home internet upstream), but it can work.

With Android as your OS, its worthless to do any PC games.

Look into Windows Surface Pro with Intel HD4000, pretty good performance for integrated graphics.

Even if it did run on a tablet, controlling stuff would be a huge pain in the posterior! No mouse, no keyboard, no direct neural interface, no cupholder... I mean what'd be the point of playing without those?

Got mouse...got keyboard...

Most good tablets have keyboard and mouse attachments available (especially Windows 8 tablets which almost always have standard USB ports), even my cheap Flytouch 2 has them. And the touch screen almost eliminates the need for a mouse.

Control's not the issue with running STO on a tablet, just compatibility.

The HP Envy x2 does the job pretty nicely

Heck, I'd consider getting a tablet just to be able to manage my doffs from the office or on the road.
