Oh, and I'm glad I got a WP7 device (LiveB).

To be honest, I'm starting to think about getting a Nexus 7 tablet - it looks pretty sweet.

After using many tablets, and rejecting them all, I intend to wait until a more general purpose tablet is released. Windows 8 might nail it, but I will have to wait and see. Right now, I don't really care for any of them though.

I agree completely about Android 4.1 - it's amazing. I really like the integration with the Google Cloud, the speed improvements, the fresh interface (on the Nexus 7), and especially Google Now. I used to dislike Android tablets, but the Nexus 7 shows what's possible with Jelly Bean if the rest of their partners get their act together. I've also tested Windows 8 on a tablet, using Splashtop Streamer on my iPad to connect to my PC running Windows 8 Release Preview, and I must say that it's impressive. I'm torn between getting a Nexus 7 or waiting until the Microsoft Surface comes out.

I don't use the cloud features though, and Google now requires me to opt-in to anonymous data collection, so I refuse to use to use it. Now if only I could disable the swipe-from-the-bottom for that... (it gets in the way when I want to swipe across the screen in Chrome to change tabs in landscape mode)
