I don't imagine much of a difference between it and windows phone 7. Though I don't own a wp7 device so I couldn't say which way it would go.

In any case, intel has changed course and decided to go with an SoC (system on a chip) design which will be more practical for embedded devices than the current atom architecture, so you're literally going to see tablets that will run all of the same apps you can run on a current PC, in addition to having a fully tablet optimized UI.

Honestly I think android is far more interesting though.
