not with the current one because the whole engine needs a new build target and a lot of work. at least not if you wanted MS to handle it

It needs to use DX11 and WinRT if it wants to go there, it will not work if you use Win32 API and DX9, such apps go through only as legacy which MS will only list but anything beyond that has to be handled by you.

And Win8 on ARM devices is not possible at all as there was no ARM Windows prior win8 :)

we will see
Cause MS is already considering native code for WP7, so I am not all that sure that they are really trying to shot their leg when it comes to tablet market before they even started. Cause With ARM15 quad cores at 2ghz per core, we will see desktop alike apps and if they are force gimped to 'crap' then Win8 won't see any chance in the tablet market at all.
