Do you think Windows 8 tablets will be a success?

So, Windows 8 tablets should be arriving next year; from what we've seen so far they seem like they should be able to provide a clean, simple and strikingly beautiful experience..but will they be given a chance to shine or be dominated by the iPad? 

Android tablets have hardly taken the world by storm, although this might change in a few days due to the Kindle Fire (whether or not it "counts" as an Android tablet is up to you), will the Windows brand really be enough to push these tablets?
