Android is getting multitasking and this alone puts it into different league. So far I have discovered exactly one (1) nice Modern UI app - Manga Reader. It is logical fullscreen, does not require lots of settings, and still does useful things like buffering and search. The other apps? The App Store app perfectly reveals some Modern UI problems - inconvenient navigation, hard to compare 2 similar apps, eirther shows empty space or takes refuge in the browser. The Weather app is useful, but why do I see min/max forecasts from several sources and only one hourly forecast? Next to Hello World, but ads are there. Nice move, Microsoft, you forgot I have already payed for the OS? Skype does not have enough settings to make the camera work...
Modern UI cannot scale, thus App Store cannot mature. Yearly upgrades may fix that in several years, maybe.
Let us call things by the names - RT tablet is a niche machine for Office nerds (alternatively, a grave of unused hardware power), iOS tablet is a MAC accessory, and Android tablet is an expansive toy on a quest of becoming a cheap computer. Pro is a modest computer that makes purchase of a tablet unnecessary.
Pro is Windows 7 SP2 plus RT. We know Windows 7 alone failed on slates dramatically. Is Pro doomed to be a success? I guess Microsoft is making yet another mistake positioning Pro as a tablet. Pro can take nearly all nettop, laptop, and ultrabook market and considerable part of desktop upgrades while preventing lots of tablet purchases, but to do this it should be distanced from RT and tablets in general as much as possible. Maybe not even discussed in one article with iOS and Android.
