Been thinking of getting a tablet soon, mostly for surfing the Web and some games/netflix use. I'm not a big Apple fan so I would prefer android or Windows based. I'm unsure how the windows app store is, any input? Also, I am getting a ps4 at launch so if there are any cool interactions I'm not aware of with the ps4 and a tablet let me know!

*surface rt and nexus 7/10 have caught my attention most *

Windows app store is terrible.

Nexus 7. Or Sony Xperia Z if you want a 10-incher.

The newer model Nexus 7 is the best tablet on the market.

Android tablet apps suck. Windows RT apps are nonexistent.

If you don't want an iPad, don't bother getting a tablet.

Windows 8 (not RT) is awesome on tablets.

The Windows 8 App Store is crap... but we don't need no steeenking apps anyway!

If you're just looking into a tablet now, you might hold off until someone has had a chance to do a write up on just how much better the battery life is with Haswell processors. It might also be good to wait until more info is available about the performance of the Bay Trail Atoms.

I'm looking at the Sony Tap 11 as a potential tablet candidate.
