While we usually refer to SD cards (most devices that support cards use these as they are common as dirt and Digital Cameras ) , it applies to any type of card the reader supports

If you have a "card reader(writer)", these are all treated as Disk drives.
So 1 choice (and the only one if your reader does not show as supported/able) is to 'Save to Disk' feature in Calibre.
If your reader supports cards as well as internal, you will see icons for each appear in the Toolbar shortly after connecting the device.

Ah!
When it is connected. You should see 2 new Icons (next to the Library Icon).
Click the one that says CardA, Those are the Books Calibre found on the card.
If there is NO tick (after the task wheel stop spinning), that means the book is not in your Library (or the name is different).

V is to View (read) a book. If the book was on the Card when you tapped V, then you are reading from the Card.

I don't have a tablet but you need another reader/viewer App that works on you tablet to read the books. I don't believe Calibre runs on anything other then a PC running Windows, Linux or OSX.

Change the defaults using the little arrow next to the Device Icon (when connected).

You'll need to get an ebook reader app, such as kindle for android, or google books, or various other android readers. The calibre app you're talking about merely lets you download them, it isn't like the big calibre program that lets you read them.
