Windows tablets are a grey area to be honest. that said the Windows 8 touch screen devices are seriously overpriced
Windows tablets is nothing new, hell I had one back in 2002. The problem it seems is that most OEM's kinda miss what makes a portable tablet portable. With both Android and iOS tablets ar always on devices that in general have 8+ hours of continuous operation.
Windows Pro tablets fail at this as they are power hungry and can barely hit the 6 hour mark, and their answer to always on seems to be fast boot. As for Windows RT tablets, it still lacks in applications and will only become viable once they hit critical numbers.
Microsoft made a big mistake not clearly separating the 2 in my eyes, making customers think they both one and the same when they clearly are not. They should remove the pretend "desktop" out of RT and left Modern UI to RT only, with an ability to run Modern UI applications on a normal desktop like with ModernMix
