The Windows 8 may be here soon, BUT the Tablet Windows 8 will not run, emulate or port the same software (apps) as the traditional Windows does. Confusing? Yes, but sadly true. The tablet has different user interface (Metro) and processor architecture (ARM) than traditional Windows has (Intel or AMD x86). Tablet apps will run on the traditional Windows, but not the other way round.

Many GPS units do use microSD card and you can transfer tracks and waypoints between the unit and the card. It's not an issue.
