I much prefer a Windows 8 like experience on my tablet than a WP experience. I think what we will see is the two coming together as part of the unified platform, but retaining their individual GUI elements. A phone is a small screen, mostly portrait oriented device. Tablets, even a 7", have much more screen real estate and needs a GUI that takes advantage of it. Ever been stuck with a phone app on an iPad or Android tablet? The experience is much better when the app is designed to make use of the available screen real estate. I would like to see the experience come together more. For example, cut/paste on the phone could be the same on Windows 8/RT with the touch interface. Right now the phone has a similar look, but still feels very much like a different platform because of details like that.
