  • no... its cant be deployed on a surface tablet directly. You need to rebuild your UI. With codelinking and portable class libraries you can reuse code but it requires you design the right architecture from the beginning for this.

  • As Dave says, they are different (but related) platforms. See Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 app development for comparisons and suggestions on how to share code between Windows Store and Windows Phone projects.
