Celestron equatorial mounts can be operated with WiFi using a smart phone or tablet if you get their Sky Portal WiFi module. It plugs into one the Aux ports on the mount. You can download the free App or buy one to operate the mount. I have used this feature with the AVX and the CGEM II. Sky Safari is a popular paid App. I use iPhone or iPad but there are Android Apps to do the same thing. There are other solutions.

While I don't use such options myself, it looks like the ASIAIR PRO will control almost any INDI compatible mount, as well as everything else you would want to control on your telescope, from a tablet or smartphone. This solution will allow you to use almost any mount you want.
