It depends on what tablet you have and how much work you are able to
put in. For most tablets, the best you can get is a Debian chroot
under Android and there are a bunch of apps for that. If your tablet
is supported by Replicant or LineageOS, you might be able to go a
little further and boot Debian with an Android version of the Linux
kernel. To properly install Debian in fully supported way, you would
have to put in a bunch of effort on reverse engineering, rewriting
drivers and mainlining Linux and bootloader code changes.
