Generic hub or dock for iPhone/iPad with SD card reader, Ethernet and USB port?

Instead of connecting single devices one by one (the result would be rather ugly and bulky, wouldn't be?) I would prefer a sleek, all in one solution:

My perfect (generic) dock or hub - for iPhone/iPad - has the following ports
- USB - to connect a standard USB keyboard or mouse (will it work?)
- Ethernet
- SD card reader

A hub connecting to the device through Lightning cable is preferred over a dock or stand in which the device sits or stands.

Is there such a device for me? Would you want a similar dock or am I alone?

Doesn't exist. iPad does not work with USB, Ethernet. You can get an SD card reader for photo import only.
