Do tablets have enough power? Does it even matter? Intensive computing for filters could be done in the cloud (maybe even for an additional fee).
I don't really feel the need for a bulky windows tablet or even laptop. Only thing I'm missing when traveling is Photoshop.

There's Photoshop for iPad, but I don't personally find it useful.
I believe Photoshop Express works on Android, but that's no more useful than the iPad version IMO and experience. I guess it depends on how you hoped to use it?
Will there be a full Photoshop for Android in the near future?
Adobe does not pre-announce what they are working on. Anyone who could answer your question would be under NDA and couldn't tell you. Volunteers on the forum have no idea.
What we can tell you is that Photoshop for iPad is not a full version of Photoshop. It's streamlined and missing many features, including the Pen tool. I do use it quite often, but only for small projects. For any real work, I go to the full version on my desktop.
I just looked it up and Lightroom is available on Google Play. If you have a subscription that includes Photoshop and Lightroom (the Photography plan), you should be able to download it and sign in with your Adobe ID and PW.
I dont need a normal photo editor, I need the full thing including 3rd party plugins and filters..

The only way you will get the full version of Photoshop is with a laptop or desktop. Adobe does not make an Android version and the iPad version is not even close to the full version.
There are only a couple of filters on the iPad version and there are no 3rd party plug-ins.
So it's even far away for the apple users, still they could just offer a cloud-remote version of the full thing running on their servers, customizable with own filters and plugins.
There is a Photoshop for Web (beta)
It is included with your paid Photoshop subscription, but does not work on a tablet. It is not the full version — it is also "streamlined".
"You can currently edit in Photoshop on the web on non-mobile web browsers only. You can view and comment using a mobile web browser."
Works fine on my phone and tablet.
But as I said, I'm not looking for basic editing but using my specialized filters and actions when mobile. Maybe in a not so far future.
