Is Apple Copying the Asus Eee Pad Transformer?
After a meeting with Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, a Citigroup analyst fired a few comments with the company. The analyst, named Richard Gardner, asked whether Apple had any plan of losing the Intel silicon and Mac OS X on their MacBook Air line. In addition to this, the company was planning to replace them with ARM-based processor and the iOS. Apparently, Cook answered in a manner to which Gardner ‘walked away from this meeting with the impression that Apple feels iPad satisfies- or will soon satisfy- the needs of those who might have been interested in such a product.’
It turns out, Apple is in plans of creating a physical keyboard dock which they refer as an indispensable accessory to their next iPad; which is of course, the iPad 3. They say that this dock will attach itself to the tablet easily and serve a number of functions. If this is the case, then surely, Apple is somehow copying the Asus Eee Pad Transformer’s design!
