These are really interesting but how do you use them? Does it go into desktop/laptop mode when connected to dock or is it just a tablet on a dock? Does it run Microsoft Office 2010 or higher with Word, PPT, Excel, etc.?

Yes, you can run full Microsoft Office 2010 or higher, It is full Windows 8.1, you can get to desktop mode whenever you want.

There have been a few of these types of commercials and in all cases or almost all if I am wrong the windows phone is no where to be found. In so many ways Microsoft treats the windows phone as a second class citizen. It should be part of the Windows on all devices message. Sure you can't run legacy windows programs on it and it has its own Store but so does the RT devices. Microsoft needs to showcase the phone along with the other devices if it wants the phone to be treated seriously. I own a windows phone and it deserves to sit at the grown up table.

RT and non RT share the same store. WP is its own store because it runs in its own form factor, but more importantly, it doesn't share the same BS legacy crap BOTH RT AND NON RT Win8.x share.

That's right, while RT won't let you run any .exe you want or disable windows defender, it still is Win8.1 running on an ARM processor, and shares the same crap bootloader setup, crap registry, crap everything that makes windows in general suck.
