Windows "Imagine a phone that could run real Remote Desktop. Real PowerShell. Anything that can run on your desktop PC. Imagine 'phablet' form factors, similar to today's Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which could dock to a desktop setup and utilize an external display, keyboard, mouse, and other peripherals. Imagine a single set of APIs that work everywhere. Imagine that Phone isn't a whole separate platform, but an app. An app that runs on Windows. Real Windows. The Windows Phone team could never make that happen. But the Windows client team? You betcha. Make it happen, Microsoft. It's time to take the phone seriously." I have never agreed with Thurrot as much as I do right now.

You have warranty. When that expires and the tablet breaks down it will probably be already obsolete or on the verge of becoming so.

OTOH phones and tablets seem to be quickly approaching "good enough" like PCs did a few years ago - more recent models will be able to longer remain useful. Reliability (or good warranty) will become ever more important, in a way.
