This is something I would very much like. The Asus Transformer T100 is similar, it runs both windows 8 and Android. It looks like a tablet and can be docked.
If the iPad Pro was a large screen tablet running iOS on the go and when docked ran full blown Mac OS X I will be all over that. You could have a dock at home, work and in public places and only need to lug a tablet with you.
I thought the same but it was mostly the default background images that loads and is shown in all the ads. I switched to the dark gray snake skin like still image, under accessibility turned on bold and larger text and am now very please with how it looks. A bunch of friends have done the same and say it a world of difference.
That was my thinking. The same thing happens in the US a couple of months prior to the release of new iPhone models. How many months and numerous rumor articles have there been written about Apple signing a deal with this large China carrier? They have been waiting to pounce.
If you're the type who likes the latest and greatest AT&T is offering a new plan (can't remember the name) where you get upgraded to the newest phone when they are released. Sure it's more money but if that's your need then it's great.
