Calibre (or Calibre Companion) For Fetching News Directly Onto Android Tablets?

Nobody here may be aware of this fact but a lot of Android tablets can act as USB hosts. Go on E-Bay, search for "USB OTG", and you will see a plethora of adapter cables that are available for sale for as little as $1 each.

With that in mind, how might one fetch news articles onto an android tablet and then load these as epub documents onto an e-ink reader such as the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch?

Calibre does this on a PC or a Mac but doesn't run on Android.

My understanding is that Calibre Companion can only be useful by interacting with a PC or Mac running Calibre. Or can it do more?
