Yes,  My Asus convertible runs chirp handily.  I’ve been using it for a year now, and recently updated it to Win10, It supports my activities in RACES/ARES as well as a Communications officer with the Local Search and Rescue team.

Paulo, are you saying that it is not likely that software will never be developed for Android? That would be quite disappointing if so. I wonder are there any tablets that run Windows! would it work that way?

Not really. You already have drivers for SDR, USB to RS232 adapters, and

It's just a matter of the type of radio (driver on cable or on radio)
and the driver used. If it recognizes it as an COM port, it should work.
The software is the tricky part.
