The so called mobile innovation as you call it, happened in the PC market decades ago, not really innovative when it was done so long ago

Unless the innovative part is the less accurate interface and less processing power.

No, I'm talking about new software. You can get apps on a mobile that never existed for any desktop OS.

I suppose you're right, I've never seen a desktop app that turns your desktop into a flashlight, or a drink.

But how about you name a few apps that are on a mobile that don't exist on a desktop OS.

?199 here,

Best mate has a Google Nexus 7 rooted and tbh it does everything youd need with tegra 3 in it to boot, so it would at least have to match that pricewise or will be Android for me this Christmas.

I want something to web browse around the house/sofa/bed, connect to my bluetooth speakerset in kitchen and use for IM, teamspeak client and access all my media on my Nas via wifi, ES File epxlorers all you need and its free (and no ads in any of the apps).

It would replace my Galaxy Note phablet & my XPS M1330 laptop, to a degree in and around the house, without the Mobile phone part of course :p

Because the OS is more restricted then regular windows 8 is, and also in order to compete with the ipad the price will have to be significantly lower due to ipad's dominating position.

^This. And lack of apps (only 4000 or so as RT won't run "normal" windows software, compared to how many on iPad?)

They would have to give it to me

The full windows 8 tablet is interesting... but not at upwards of $900... FAIL

What's an "RT tablet"?

Oh, a table for Windows ARM version? I wouldn't buy one.

Universal remote app

Like any number of the Logitec software, or the early remotes for WMC and Wifi remotes, which all existed WAY before remote control apps for smartphones

You'll be hard pressed to find ANYTHING that didn't exist first on the PC in some form.

I suspect very little at launch which should give most a reason to pause on getting RT.

I would pay 400$ as long as I can load One note on it and put files on there by drag and drop like in android. I do not need a powerful device. I just need to make notes, look internet, movies, books, and some comics.

I want a Pro more, but it kinda depends on fan/noise. If any/all Pro tablets come with a fan, then it might be a deal killer. I hate my old MacBook for this very reason. On the other hand I'd love access to 'real' x86 software.

Windows RT holds no value for me. Maybe $199 should have been right price or $249. Surface Pro, now that's something very attractive/value and can be priced slightly higher than iPad.
