You can use droidmote.
Install the server on your tablet and the client on you phone.
Only thing is that server app is not free, maybe there is something else.

Nevermind, you need root on your tablet to use it.

Clever. But flawed. Won't the phone's display have to be on? I can spend hours on BT in Office and my phone's battery would be killed. I guess it's fine if the phone's plugged in but that kind of limits portability. And if you have to carry a cable/charger or a battery booster to keep your phone running you might as well get a tiny BT mouse. Perhaps one that matches.
