2. 2 day batter life with heavy use
3. 5 MP Camera with on phone cropping and simple editing like contrast, brightness, and color correction
Add to that ...
Open phone up to Verizon/Sprint and ability to bluetooth a keyboard (wait, that last one might exist ... does it?)

Am I the only one that DOESN'T want a new design?
I mean, changing the back from sleek to matte is fine, but I like the way the iphone is built, it works well, and I really like the fact that my 3G cases all fit my 3G S perfectly and I didn't have to spend a butt load more money for cases this time around.

Since we're talking hardware (because most software updates are available to all models of the phone, don't know how long they'll keep that up though) I'd have to say of course more memory and storage and faster processor speed, not too sure about the longevity of OLED screens yet so none of that for me thanks, I also vote "huh?" on the front-facing camera (just not enough other folks with front-facing cameras to justify it yet plus networks don't support the whole video chat thing--maybe in 2012 or so), I did like the "leak" about a grippy rubber finish and extra color choices to go with the new finish would be spectacular, I also hope the existing form is maintained for a few generations (along with the 30-pin connector) so that my accessories continue to work with the phone, and last on my list would be to keep most everything else the same!

I love the design of hte iphone. It is small enough that it fits comfortably in the pockets and yet big enough that if you drop it you don't lose it. I would love to see the screen encompass the whole front of the iphone. The center button should be placed on the top or side of the phone. I'd like to see double the processor speed as well as double the ram. I would like to have a front facing camera for video conferencing...i think video conferencing is the next big thing. I would like to see multitasking but I would want it to be handled smartly. There needs to be a limit to how many apps can be open and apple needs to limit it. Four apps seems to be a good number. Games and memory extensive apps won't let you open it if you have any other apps open. But the phone will close the apps for you (except itunes and other apps). I would like to see a multicolored LED light on the outside that can flash hundreds of colors to let a person know of certain events (ex. Green for message, red for missed call, blue for voicemail, orange for email, etc). I would love to have my phone sync with itunes wirelessly (whether by bluetooth or wifi). Autofocus while recording (as in while I am recording video I can tap the screen to have it autofocus). Faster wifi technology.
AND A NEW CELL CARRIER...SCREW YOU ATT

What would be sweet is a scratch resistant screen. ideally crystal quartz would be excellent.
I'd say the #1 thing on my list would be a larger higher resolution screen with a higher color count.

All you guys saying WTF to front facing camera; I don't want it for video calling, I want it for blogging!
And I firmly believe that if apple introduced that and HD recording, the iPhone would be the best video recording device on the market (for those who like the flip HD or Sony webbie).

I think without a case the iPhone is too thin to fit snugly in a pocket, and I wear incredibly tight DKNY jeans.. It just falls right to the bottom and moves around all day. I got a thick *** silicone case with a shnit load of nubs on the back to prevent this from happening :P

A front facing camera would be nice for video conferencing, but since that isn't really even possible right now, they could probably just add a small LDC panel on the back of the phone that you can toggle on/off for taking pics of yourself. That would be cheaper and more space efficient. Even my tiny little cheap-*** Nokia flip phone from a few years back had that.

Higher Res Screen
"Expose" or "Spaces"
800mhz processor 512mb Ram
Flash would ruin design unless the apple logo is used as it which seems dumb.
Wireless n? Umm no there is no need wireless N is completely unnecessary if the phone can't go that fast.

I love my phone as is and wouldn't give it up.
But for the sake of the thread, my picks are:
* led indicator
* multitasking for 3rd party apps (with a limit of how many)
* xenon flash (I don't need the crappy flash on these U.S. smartphones)

@mullrat it is for vanity photos and video blogging. Rarely anyone video conferences in countries where it is available. It wouldn't harm the network and it would be expensive which would recoup more network costs.
And it's not about what YOU need it's about having the option. I think it's a probably addition to the next iPhone.

I want a new design, better camera, bigger and higher res OLED screen, and better battery life. Maybe multitasking, but I don't care enough to want it that bad. I used to have a BB Curve and although that multitasked, I have never looked back since going to the iPhone.

I want it to be able to do most of the things a jailbroken phone can do without the need to jailbreak it. Like themes, sound packs for things like text messages, backgrounding for at least a few third-party apps, etc. And more storage. I kinda missed the boat getting the 3G only a couple months before the 3GS came out, but paying $200 for 8gb (or even 16) of storage is pretty ridiculous when MP3 players like the Zune have 80GB now.

-High res. OLED screen.
-Multi-core processor system on a chip.
-Able to run a few apps at one time.
-Better battery life, for the love of god Apple you can add 2-3mm to it if it means a bigger battery.
-Better than 3MP camera, at least 5.
-Soft touch back.
-Screen made of solid diamond that is unbreakable (lol )
