SkyFi 3 Can Serial port and USB port be used for for two separate applications at the same time?

Wow, it would be handy if cables did not have to come from telescope to computer at all. You guys have made me greedy for no connector cables near the telescope that is operating in the dark.

I can use my Android tablet w/ SkySafari Pro 5 to control the telescope. My laptop can also hook to SkyFi 3. So, can I use the USB port to control an astronomy camera at the same time as the serial port is steering the telescope? My camera is a Celestron NexImage 5mp solar system imager. Has anyone attempted this dual use yet?

My SkyFi 3 was born a Meade Stella WiFi adapter, but it successfully updated with the SkyFi 1.3.3 firmware upgrade and works perfectly with SkySafari Pro 5 on Android Kindle Fire HD. 

Thank you for any information available.
