I'm writing this on an old Lenovo Tab2 running Android 4.4.2. Lr mobile runs fine on it. If you already have the tablet I would just try downloading the app and installing it. If you don't you will need to check the spec of the device, especially the OS version and memory, against the requirements of Lr.

I have not bought it yet and I was thinking if I can run the canon app on it then I can play with the jpeg photos in light room mobile while on the road.

I would be checking the OS compatibility against the Android version. I for instance have a Samsung Galaxy that isn't compatible because of the Android version (4.1.2). Unfortunately the Android isn't upgradeable except to root the device.

If it's a new device then I would not worry too much I would expect that they have an Android version that is new enough for Lr Mobile. My even older Galaxy Note 3 is actually on Android 5.0.

I find Lr mobile, and the web service to be really useful. I have stuck with Lr Classic CC, not the new web based version, so am still working online with 2500px long edge Smart Previews. You can put images into collections, but not unfortunately smart collections, and then set the collection to sync with the mobile app. Doing that gives you access to those images while on the go, and since you can access all of the Lr tools you can even make changes, although I would be a bit careful doing critical colour or exposure changes. Very handy if you want to go over some images on site with a client.

You can do this in a web browser on any computer too, which is much better for editing. You can also upload images this way too, although you will need good bandwidth for uploading original RAW files via the web page.

The other great thing is that it also works in the other direction too. Any images you shoot on the devices camera, or any RAW files that might get transferred to it will automatically be uploaded to the Adobe servers, and then synced back to your main Lr installation. Where this really beats using a service like Dropbox to transfer the images, is that you are not limited to a single watched folder. You can pick any folder for the images to be transferred to, and can even have dated subfolders too. So I just have my phones images transferred directly to my main images folder structure.

Of course anything that you do to the images in the Lr app also get transferred over too, so you can add keywords etc while on the go too.

Lr mobile is so much more than just and app for playing with JPEG's from your device camera.

The current version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for Android is 3.2.1 and it dates from about mid-December 2017. It requires Android 4.1 or higher. The original Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 came with Android 4.0.3 "Ice Cream Sandwich" and thus will not operate with Lightroom 3.2.1. Those machines were offered an official upgrade to 4.1.2 in the States and later Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) in areas of Europe. So if you have an original Note 10.1 that hasn't been upgraded, LR 3.2.1 won't work.

Yes, based on what I see on the web.

Yes it should, since that is one of the versions that I am actually running Lr mobile on without any issues.
