It's very unlikely but there is a workable alternative. Buy a MiFi (naff name I know) which is a wireless access point combined with a 3G modem.

I have a Huawei E585 (cost £50 from 3 in UK) which I can use with my phone, my two tablets, my children's iPods and my laptop. It's super easy to connect and I have been extremely pleased with mine. I have had 2 3G modems and I didn't really like either but the E585 is really good and wasn't expensive.

Only if the tablet is designed to work with one -- it needs to have USB ports, and the appropriate network drivers have to be available.. Ask the manufacturers which, if any, of these will play nicely together.
