Hmmmm. Dual-boot (android/windows) would be nice. One for gaming and another for productivity. :p

Yeah! According to some earlier news, Ubuntu is already on it's way to Android devices courtesy of a dock. This will provide you with a full desktop OS. It might take some time though for Ubuntu to create a touch version of their OS.

This COULD take the pad concept into a whole new and great direction.. IF, and that's a HUGE if.. MS doesn't price things so high that nobody will take the plunge.

If the win8 tablets are anywhere near the pricing as the iPad.. forget it.

I agree the specs are great but I'm tired of over priced tabs that are just big phones in general like android tabs. But I'm willing to pay comfortably 400 off contract and $300 on contract if so.

Windows 8 OS and the Blue stacks App that enables a windows computers to run Android apps will be a big thing in the the Tablet world. It means that when the windows 8 tablet comes to market it can loaded with Apps from Windows and Andriod sources thus making them worth buying and very useful for many many things. Windows 8 tablets wont be dud devices.
