In the video below sources compare several scenarios in Windows 8 to an Apple iPad running the latest iOS 5 beta could not extend this to more built in features like Mail, Calendar, App Store etc as a lot of these experiences are not available in the developer preview build of Windows 8.
According to Redmondpie:
The comparison begins with a basic overview of the lock screens, which are quintessentially identical, barring the fact that the Windows version is visually similar to the sort of interface present for years in the desktop version of Windows. The Windows lock screen looks a great deal more polished, and up against iOS helps to encapsulate nicely the contrasting ideas between Apple and Microsoft on how things should look. Windows 8 lock screen surely has a huge advantage, because of Windows 8’s ability to run both full fledged desktop OS and Metro-style-Tablet-optimized Start menu (without compromising any performance), it has roaming (using Windows Live ID) user profiles/accounts, something which both iOS and Android OS are currently missing.
Next up is the home screen, arguably the most important page on any smartphone or tablet in terms of looks, functionality, usability and features. iOS, as we know, shows row upon row of icons, and is outclassed quite significantly by the much talked-about Metro UI – Microsoft’s best effort yet in the design stakes by a country mile. Furthermore, the easily customizable tiles actively stream data and updates in a widget-like fashion, lessening the need for unnecessary navigation as the information is there for all to see.
The HTML5 browsing experience appears similar on both devices, with Windows 8 also allowing a keyboard split for less intrusive typing. The response from both keyboards are pretty indistinguishable. Via 1, 2
