For Android, you can download and install the SDK http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

You can also install the Windows 8 Developers preview in a VM to try the Windows 8 (tablet oriented).

Windows 7 tablets, are pretty much just Windows 7 with a few tweaks, drivers and touch enabled monitors.

Apple, not much... maybe the SDK will let you see some of it, not sure as I stay as far away as possible from that Evil-sphere.

Hi,

An alternative would be to use something like LogMeIn Rescue to connect to the device from a PC/Laptop and then show what's actually on the device itself? You could do this over a WiFi connection provided both can access the internet.

That way it's actually what you see rather than a simulator which may or may not be truly representative of the device?

Regards,

@Rob, The problem is I don't have a tablet to do this with.  I've let myself get lazy and now I'm starting to see more usage of these devices so I'm working to stay abreast of everything.
