Well, the choice is not obvious. Android and Windows 8/8.1 has as many advantages as disadvantages.

Android:
+thousands of free apps and games
+easy in use
+clear interface
+writing new apps is not difficult
-there is no reliable antivirus program
-sometimes unstable
Windows:
+runs all classic and tiles programs
+classic Office
+better for multimedia
-Metro UI is not clear
So... I think Andorid wins this competition.

Make a list of the top 20 most important apps to you and go with the tablet OS that runs them.

Personally I bought a Nexus 7 tablet so that I could see the apps available for Android that are not available for Windows Phone 8. As a C# developer it gives me endless ideas for new WP8 apps. If the metro apps you want aren't there on Windows, I can't blame you for going Android.

First... If you are an Android phone user, wouldn't you want to leverage the same OS and eco-system, using a familiar user interface and accessing the same Play store apps you've already purchased/use.

Secondly, after using an iPad3, iPad Mini, Surface RT, and Surface Pro, I settled on the Samsung Galaxy Tab3 8.0 as my Daily Driver Tablet. The form factor, weight, and display size are perfect. I have no issue spending hours surfing, e-mailing, posting, etc. on this tablet and really only head to my Win8 PC for "heavy work" and my phone (GS2) for full mobility.
