Readability on small Windows tablets?

Since 7-8 inch Windows tablets will be released soon, I was wondering if readibility might be an issue with those screens. The start screen as seen on the Acer Iconia W3 8 inch tablet is scaled in a way that I think most people would have trouble reading the small fonts on the live tiles at normal distances.

What do you guys think?
