There is no information about the compatibility of this device with your Android tablet but you can test it for yourself. To start, you need to connect the Data card to your Android tablet using the USB OTG Cable that came with the tablet. After you did this, press the Option button from your tablet, go to Wireless & Network > and make sure that you have WiFi option unchecked. This is advised because 3G and WiFI aren't compatible. From the same menu, select Enable 3G. You should now see the 3G signal bar next to the device's clock. If you can't see the signal bar after a couple of minutes, remove the dongle from the tablet, go to Settings > Wireless & Network > Mobile Networks > Access Point Names > New APN. Before you do this, make sure that your data connections are enabled in the menu. You can activate the data connection from Settings > Wireless & Network > Mobile Networks > Use packet data. After you set up the new APN, connect your dongle to the tablet. After a few minutes, the 3G signal should appear on the top bar of your device and you can connect to the Internet.
