I can't wait for the rumored Nokia Windows 8 tablet. I am using a iPad now but Safari will not work with my Home Office website. Business users really need a Windows 8 Tablet for work. I hope beyond all hopes that Nokia can come out with a home run machine.

OK I have been so entrenched with Apple Products that I have been missing the news on Windows products but that may change and soon. Is there a Windows tablet out right now that is top notch? HP had some sort of tablet but it has been discontinued. I need something that runs Internet Explorer well to connect to my companies website. I don't want something cheesy, I may have to wait for the rumored Nokia Tablet running Windows 8. Any news is welcome.

Official "windows 8" tablets will be released when windows 8 is. So around October /November . But there are a couple really good tablets you can buy now and put win8 consumer preview on it. I have the Samsung Series 7 Slate.

While I love my iPad 2 dearly, I will probably be heading out for a Windows 8 tablet, should Nokia bring one to the table.

What's top noth? Untill the final W8 tablets are released an Acer w500 will do me just fine.
All hardware on it is supported. Bought second hand cheap. Loving it.
W8 x86 tablets are a whole new market. Only W8 ARM tablets can be compared with the big phone tablets like a Tab10.1 and ipad.

Check it out on the Acer site or on Ebay. I bought mine on Craigslist for a steal.
Windows 8 needs a keyboard sometimes.

It started as a gadget toy for me, but my PC use has dropped for something like 40% after year of iPad use.
One thing i love on Windows 8 is the multitasking over ipad. Just wanna see Nokia deliver on the spec and design department and i'm buying it.
Thinking how important the screen is on tablets it would be cool to see some really high reso screen be it ISP or AMOLED with Nokia's Clear Black display tech (added polarizing filter layer).
The thing that separates Nokia's Clear Black Display and Samsung's S AMOLED is that it can be added to any display type for better viewing angels and deeper blacks.

I'm sure I'll get a Win 8 Tablet but I can't say it'll be Nokia. As far as I know, they haven't proven themselves with Windows Phones. (I had the chance get a hands on the Nokia 900 today. I can't say I was as "impressed" with it as I thought I would be.) But when the tablets begin to drop, we'll see what they can do for the American palate. Then I'll decide.

If Nokia is going to make a tablet then let's hope they have the brains to innovate and make a phon-let! I keep waiting for someone to change the game, MS totally dropped the ball with the Surface. If Nokia wants to hit a home run they need to make a 7" - 10" tablet with phone parts built in period!

I rather hope Nokia to make high end tablet (that will probably give with Nokia) with higher end specs in the 450-700 euros range, amazing great Clear Black screen, Nokia design and at best some twist to it all from Nokia.

But that IS the point! How many companies are making phone/tablets? Not many that I know of. But how many are make tablets? Everybody and his aunt Tilly! So how do you stand out from the crowd? By making something different and convenient!!!
When tablets first came out I wondered why anyone would buy them, they didn't really do anything besides web surfing, email, app's, etc. I had a Palm Pre for all that so I bought a laptop. Then the HP firesale happened and since they were reasonably priced I bought a Touchpad. After hacking the Pre so it can be a hot spot for the Touchpad, I now use the TP to do everything the Pre did, except make calls & text. Oh wait, just discovered a way to text with it. ;) The Pre has become an expensive alarm clock! And if the Touchpad had built in phone capabilities, that Pre would be in a drawer collecting dust! ;)

I have one... a Samsung ATIV-S Smart PC T700 with dock keyboard. i5, 4Gb or RAM, 128Gb SSD, added a 64Gb microSD.
I can tell you even my Macbook Pro which is not the newest model has no chance at all against this Windows 8 Pro tablet!
So, expensive... maybe, but you get a good Notebook and ULTRA Tablet in one go!*** Forza Windows Phone 8 ***
