Bing news app
There are lots of news reader apps on all the mobile platforms but the Bing News app in Windows 8 is superb. It is particularly suited for touch operation on tablets and is a joy to use. It's exclusive to Windows 8 so the competiton is out of luck.
Run any browser
Every browser out there will run on Windows so tablet users aren't restricted to one or two as on other platforms. All of the popular browsers (e.g. Firefox, Chrome) can be used on a Windows tablet so everyone's preference will work. Internet Explorer is pretty good in Windows 8 but it's nice to have options.
Run powerful software
Windows 8 can run any legacy software which means even powerful programs like AutoCAD and Photoshop can be installed and used. This turns the tablet into a good work tool for even professionals in the most demanding professions. If it runs on a Windows workstation, chances are it will run on a Windows 8 tablet.
