Re: Don't believe it....
> Android has fallen flat on tablets and Windows 8 will only reinforce this further.
The current Android versions were for phones. Tablets using a phone based OS were likely to not be great tablets. ICS and later will make a difference.
Windows 8 tablets are said to become available later this year, but that is likely to be only x86 with ARM tablets possibly early next year. x86 tablets are likely to cost much more, just as Win7 tablets do at present, while Metro may provide a better touch interface the Windows applications will still fail to be usable with touch. Windows applications on x86 tablets will likely require to be used with keyboard and mouse and will make the device more like a laptop that comes apart, but will be more expensive.
Windows 8 ARM tablets (WOA) will likely disappoint. Windows applications won't work (though WP7 phone apps will, perhaps), the ARM Office may be a cut down version, or just a bigger version of what is on WP7, other apps will only be available from MS. They will also be locked into W8 rigidly and may cost more than equivalent iPads or Android tablets.
WOA also won't be available any day soon, and that will give a year to iPad, Android and others to pass them. In fact Ubuntu is already available to OEMs to add to Android so that it can boot to Linux and use the Android interface or the Unity (or other) interface as required, such as when docked. I could run OpenOffice on my N800 tablet (small though it was) some years ago. By the time WOA is on the shelves the whole market could have changed yet again, and MS will still be a year behind.
> does Android have iTunes? No.
I certainly don't care about that, but it there is an opportunity to make money then _someone_ will do that.
> Does Android have Office? No.
Android does have apps that will view and edit MS Office documents. It also can access these on 'the cloud' such as GoogleDocs. Android is Linux based and could run OpenOffice, as it was running for some years on the ARM based N800 series.
Does WOA have 'Office'. No, not yet, not for another year perhaps. Will WOA have 'Office' or a cut down version ? We don't know yet.
> Does Android play all top games?
Given the market share it will run more top games than WOA for a year or more, possibly two. W8 x86 may run PC games but how many will be usable with touch interface, and how much will that cost ?
