So I have the surface RT and its great. Perfect for what it does, and blows my daughters (shes 7) Asus transformer android tablet away. But her's has a keyboard dock for about $150 that we bought and transforms the tablet to a laptop, and doubles the battery life.
I had the type keyboard but took back and got the touch keyboard and its great. Only issue is we cannot use the keyboards on our laps. 90% of the time i'll use my touch keyboard, but i'd like a keyboard that weighs as much as the tablet and allows the tablet to stand like a laptop.
I'm buying the surface pro on the 8th and this is the only feature its lacking vs an ultrabook. I know the surface pro isn't a laptop replacement but with that type of keyboard it would be a laptop replacement.
Anything in the works? maybe in a couple years? also is the keyboard dock available for 3rd parties? could other companies create similar technology or is that not allowed?
