Apple has:

Nexus/Google/Samsung have: ....

So at the moment, it's clearly an Amazon-Apple battle moreso than a Google battle; until Google has great native content, it renders the device --- a content consumption device --- nearly useless.

Amazon Fire, meet iPad mini.

For that reason, the best thing Surface Tab could do would be to come pre-installed with Kindle, Netflix, and Spotify with one-year free sub or something similar.

Content is king; it's funny how many folks miss that this is a significant part of Apple's dominance. iTunes and the iPod set them up magnificently since most folks use a wireless device to access content, whether handheld (iphone/android/windows phone/ipod) or tablet.
