As long as retailers keep comparing budget Android tablets to “fully capable light duty” laptop replacements. Where’s the Dell Venue 8? The Toshiba, Lenovo, Acer and Asus 8″ offerings. I know most purchasing decisions are made in store, but this plants a seed; “Windows tablets are out of range for me”. We desperately need that 7″ or 8″ Windows tablet for less than $150 to be competitive.

Could the Windows Bing Edition tablets save the day? Hopefully in a couple months we will have the answer.
