Is there a way of running Saleslogix 8.0 on Windows RT on a tablet. Specifically the remote client and database. A client of ours is wanting to migrate to tablets instead of laptops, but I'm not sure if the Mobile Client will be sufficient for them, as they want the advantage of having a local database, rather than what was cached by the browser.
Alternatively, I've heard there are iPad apps available for Saleslogix, which would be a decent version? And what about supporting customizations? The client in question has extensive customizations throughout the application.

No, 'fraid not - as it's not Wintel based and requires the app to be in the store (which it isn't).
You can, of course, run the Saleslogix Mobile through a browser. Again, it's not an app you download, but a link you go to via the browser. It's not off-line either.
I wouldn't bet my house on RT sticking around much longer - your client needs to check into that, much better to go with Surface Pro and Wintel version (and SLX does work, as I've tried that).
As you mention extensive customisation - then you'd be looking at either LAN client with local db and/or some form of RD perhaps? If they need fully off-line capability, and it's LAN/Windows Client, then Surface Pro, with local DB and local Client would work well (providing they can get used to the quirks of the keyboard, touch etc).
