Windows 8 is still not ready to be on tablets

Tablets are best devices for reading, playing games, watching movies and browsing the web. But in all these activities, the user is a consumer because he/she accesses the pre-created content. A tablet, whether it is iPad or Android device, it is not suitable for Windows 8.

Windows 8 was built for work well on touchscreen devices with its modern UI, while still retaining the core functionality with the 'Desktop app' which transported you to the windows interface. There have been plenty of touchscreen laptops running on windows 8, but they don't offer the portability to tablets.

The Acer W4 is the live example of massive gap between theory and practicality. In paper, you get the convenience of windows with added benefit of being customized for touchscreens. In reality, it's an operating system that fails on both aspects. The difference between windows 8 and Windows RT is also informed.

There are two personalities in window 8 and updated version windows 8.1. The first is the modern UI, which features fancy 'live Tiles'. The other is the Desktop mode, which appears as an app in modern UI.

Modern UI is touchscreen interface alone and it falters in some aspects when compared to the iOS and Android. The windows Store simply does not have the same number of apps that are available on android and because of that, it is impossible to recommend it for tablet use alone. Unlike the desktop, touchscreen device rely a lot on apps optimized for touch usage.
