It will be interesting what the Nexus 10 will be like...I hope it has the stylus option like the Galaxy Note 10.1......
The apps aren't what makes it appealing. Running full blown MS makes apps completely irrelevant. You could load Office 2010, just like a desktop PC. And run full blown Outlook, and any other desktop app. Some Windows only apps are essential to the enterprise world, and currently won't run on any tablet.
I really think there would be a big demand for that functionality on a tablet. A lot more so in the enterprise environment, where they don't care about overpaying for technology. The manufacturer could overprice it, and it would still sell well just because it's a legit Windows environment.
People underestimate the value of Windows coverage, and how it hasn't translated to tablets very well yet at all.
