A7(r) Tethered Control With Android Tablet

I regularly shoot with my D800 controlled by my Samsung Galaxy Tab via USB.  I don't transfer data over I just use the tablet for remote control (ISO, WB, and shutter speed, image taking) and live view while on a tripod.

Thinking of getting an A7r and want to have the same capabilities - i.e., be able to change the shutter speed, ISO, WB, and trip the shutter while viewing the scene in live view.  My experience with WiFi with other cameras is that there is a significant lag in viewing that for some uses is not very tolerable.  So wired tethering is highly preferred.  Can the A7r be controlled via USB and an Android tablet?

Thanks - John
