Phone or tablet as monitor

For Pentax DSLRs do we have something like this?

Turn your Android into a monitor for your DSLR with a cheap accessory and an app | Android Central

It is cheap for amateurs like me.

The K-S2, K-70 and K-1 had do this using Image Sync, and the K-3 family, 645Z and K-S1 can do it using the FluCard.

Apart from that you can't do anything over USB as with Canon, but you can get an external HDMI monitor.

And remember your TVs will likely have HDMI inputs. If you threw away the mini HDMI cable that came with your camera, buy another (longer, if you like) one from an electronics store.
