I use the apps on my WP8 and they work perfectly for me straight out of the box.

Kingston Office is a terrible app. Slow, sluggish, full of bugs - it came included with my Tablet - POS.

Do not see the need to have a device that I have to go and install a ton of different add-ons to accomplish what I can do today with my WP8 and Surface RT. Yes you may get some differnt features using these add-ons. But everything listed above can be done with a Windows Phone and Surface RT and having Skydrive sync to my computer. No need to convert data from one format to another with my office documents. I use OneNote everyday for all my note taking and it syncs to my skydrive. Only thing I had to do was have Skydrive installed on my Windows 7 computer. OneNote, Office Docs, all sync between my devices. Once we upgrade our SharePoint Server it will add even more flexability.

The problem with that suggestion is that you would be stuck with a W8 device. Apps make the device and iPhone / Android have that market cornered. These are the two platforms of choice - any others are a lost cause.

You could use a W8 phone with these features built into it!
