Windows Computex is going on right now, and as was to be expected, we're seeing a whole boatload ot Windows 8 tablets... But also a few crazy contraptions that have 'want' written all over them. My personal favourite? The Asus Taichi: a laptop with two screens (both on the inside and the outside of the lid) so you have a laptop as well as a tablet. I love crazy experimentation like this - sure, it may not always work or pan out, but this is how mankind progresses. What I'll most likely be buying later this this year: this thing (although I prefer a smaller version). I love my ZenBook, so a relatively conventional Asus Windows 8 tablet is perfect for me.

I own, and have only tried 7", 10" and 12". 7" is best for thumb typing, 10" for pdf/desktop website reading. 12" is a disaster overall.

If you are in market for 5" monster phone, 7" doesn't make much sense, but otherwise it's a good ergonomic choice; especially since you'll probably get it cheaper than a 10" one anyway.

Windows 8's soft keyboard has a split option that divides the keyboard into two parts, and moves them close to either side (in landscape mode). Allows you to do thumb-typing on larger form factors. Check it out.

I have tried it on 12" (I have the release preview on my exopc), it still sucks (you have to turn the focus of your vision from left to right all the time).

It might work better with 10", have to try it out someday.
