why android cellphone or tablet cant.
also i found an app ($1,99) that allow to convert ipad screen into a new display for a computer through wireless, is there some app like that for android??
Android runs on top of a modified linux kernel, but it's not a true linux distro, so it can't run linux apps or drivers. Something would have to be written special. Maybe if you can run ubuntu off your device, you may be able to do something. What device do you have that has USB host?
Also, if its not USB 2, you may not have enough speeds to transfer. I think sending video output through usb would take a lot of processing power, which it may not be worthwhile with a phone.
What device do you have and exactly what are you trying to do... If I knew what you're trying to do, I might be able to help. I'm good with stuff like that.
You could maybe just get a DLNA adapter and wireless send video to a monitor or TV, instead. I'm not sure what you are exactly trying to get accompliched. give more details.
