Re: An "add on" to a Windows phone?

"The problem with that for the time being is that apps on Windows Phone don't necessarily appear on Windows proper and vice-versa."

Yeah, I bought one of those £60 Tesco Windows Connect tablets over Christmas and one of the most annoying aspects of using Windows 8.1 on a tablet is when you find a useful app for Windows Phone 8 only to find out that it won't work on Windows tablets. One advantage that Android has over Windows is that generally Android apps will work on both tablets and phones.
