That's BB for you. Windows 7 Tablets are out there.

While I don't get the attraction, they are out there. I wonder if the Windows 8 comment was about Windows 8 RT which is not the same thing as what folk have grown accustomed to.

Answer
Intel atom-based Windows 8 tablet is your answer
by meilinhsieh Intel staff / November 18, 2012 1:54 PM PST

Only Intel atom-based (CloverTrail) Windows 8 tablet has full support of desktop features which will allow you to install java (or any Windows 7 compatible software). The one you saw at Best Buy is probably a ARM-based Windows RT tablet which has limited support of desktop feature.
