"Having used Window 8, I think it's a cracker on a portable touch-screen device. It wipes the floor with Android and iOS".
I held off buying any tablet until after being able to review Win 8 RT. I completely disagree with you. I opted for Android and it's a joy to use across different sized devices (also bought a dual SIM smartphone, android, which is impossible in the windows or apple worlds). By comparison Metro is really fisher-price blocks for kids, not at all sophisticated and they are just square widgets, loads of empty white spaces within the apps. Android can sync with my Exchange account perfectly and Polaris handles Office files without a problem so far, why on earth would anyone go with Win 8 unless they are forced to or are a MS fanboy? I've really stuck with MS since the mid 80's but my goodness, what a dinosaur they have become. At this rate they will become extinct within a decade if they don't replace Balmer and change the company culture and products.
