I don't think so, but from what I've read, people have been running emulators to run dji go or litchi onthose window based tablets. Most of them are spec'd way better than normal tablets too, but sorry I personally do not know.

I got shouted down when I asked !

As I read - DJI are not interested until Win tablets are more common. Seems a shame really ......

It makes no sense for DJI to do a Win version. The P3 runs a version of Unix, iOS is a version of Unix, Android is a version of Unix. Windows is not a version of Unix

Also Windows Tabs have a tiny market share.......like less than 3%

You can run something called bluestacks to emulate a android tablet on windows. I've done it on my window computer so I would think it can run on a Windows tablet. After you set that up you can then use dji go or litchi.

I suppose, at some time, I'll upgrade to a compatible tablet instead of trying to flying with my phone, with reading glasses perched on the tip of my nose. Thanx again, gang. All your input is of great value to me

Its actually interesting that a quoted market share may be seriously in error.

Why ?

Win is used on many other items such as car satnavs etc. which probably get left out of the reckoning. I would suggest that the real share may be higher. More and more boats are carrying satnav, guess what - many of those are win based. Go take a look at such as Banggood ......

I have two excellent win based navigation tablets that would work really well on a DJI. But I don't like emulators, so for now will let it pass.

The other problem of course is that Android is so messed up by 3rd parties creating different versions, lots of applications are version dependent.

I have various items such as mini endoscope, code readers, key-finders etc. that work on one system, but not on another. You check the specs and it says works with 4.2 or whatever. You buy and try it -nnothing, why ? Because Bluetooth is wring or something else is not quite correct .....

Android was a great innovation and entry to the market, but got messed up by its own success.

As to iOS - that's another story of pure commercialism and shame .... near as bad as Microsoft.

Android and iOS are both derived from Unix.....as is the P3 firmware :)

I'm not sure I would trust an emulator. I feel like it adds another layer of processor load, but it's only a vague feeling - not based on any actual supporting fact

Is your endoscope app loaded on the same platform as your flight video system. If so, are there any storage issues?

Think you missed my point.

Android versions are not developed by original authors. But only authorised.
Each has its own 'quirks' creating the difficulties we see when connecting peripherals.

IOS just gets updated with the next tablet - commercialism as Microsoft does.

Whether Unix or not becomes actually irrelevant once 3rd party developers get involved.

No different phone / tablets. For the reason I gave above. Just because the android version number is correct dies not g'tee working.

Thanx, Nigel. I did get that part of the post. Then I went on to read that you also operated a bore-scope from your phone. I was just curious, as I had to delete some other app from my phone to accomodate DJI GO.
