I work in the medical field and i know almost all of the old windows tabs that you listed. They were all hovering around $3K with no cellular data connection, 2 hours of in-use battery life, and horrific font scaling. Oh wait, all windows tabs still have those problems, and still cost around $1k-3K. (actually the ones on the left with a handle - the Motion ones- are still the most prefered) tl;dr - I don't know one owner of any of those tabs, even the android, that would not switch to the 4G LTE iPad 2 retina from Verizon if given a choice. either way the banning is stupid. let the best product win, thats how we all get better stuff... apple needs to keep innovating to stay where it is.
