you can run chrooted ubuntu on the HP touchpad (if that's the tablet you're referring to) courtesy of webOSInternals.
I did some investigation, and Pronterface won't run on Android any time soon due to lack of support for wxWidgets, which the pronterface UI is based upon. But you have a bunch of other options:
1) Native Android applications (like Bot Cubed, maybe there are others). I've seen some screenshots and they are still very immature, but they look promising.
2) Find a way of running Linux natively. Some tablets can be made dual-boot into some flavor of Linux (I now the Asus Transformer can). Unfortunately not all devices allow this. I just did a quick search and it seems that the Thrive is pretty hackable, but I haven't seen a straightforward way to put Linux on it.
3) Run Linux in a chrooted environment under Android. You will need to root the device, but otherwise the installation should be quite straightforward. It is probably a safe but slow option.
