    I think we can toss the retina display out as no way in V2. It'd take something like a res of 2600 x 2000 to achieve on an iPad. What else has that? Nothing I know of & no way can it be produced to sell for iPad pricing - at least today.

    What will you do with a front facing camera except then want a phone inside?
    video chat, Video conferencing (assuming Apple approves that)

    The iPad will NOT get a phone app. Want a phone, then get the iPhone.

    I want to be able to borrow library books and read them on the iPad. Many public libraries use the Overdrive services which don't allow for ebooks to work on the iPad. It would be nice for Apple to work with Overdrive to find an alternative solution for the eBooks. Only the audiobooks currently work on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod.

    Pretty funny, there wiggy. Apple eroding iBook sales to make the library accessible. I doubt it.

    Oh and I totally agree with you about the display port... I really hope they just use mini hdmi instead of some proprietary bs... But knowing apple...
    I agree. Proprietary interfaces add a great deal to the cost and inconvenience of buying Apple.

    I don't own an ipad but i'm looking into one so i really don't have much of a wish list. However, I ran into someone who owns a kpad (nade in korea) and it's so much lighter and is made in smaller dimensions. It seems more convenient to carry around and utilize it with more comfort.

    I like Chris's original post full of ideas. I agree with everything. More colours would be uber-cool. Hey, if Microsoft can do it for the Zune HD Originals (using brushed anodized aluminum), why not Apple? I'd pay the extra bucks to have a blue iPad!

    Option to mirror iPad/iPhone screen on external screen (as Steve's been doing since day 1 in his iPhone announcements).

    agreed th op's ideas, what's I looking forward to is thinner, lighter, and with the camera, of course Facetime video chat support, hmm, a rear-facing camera capable of shooting video and high-definition photos is Great, and actually hope flash support, but I know that's impossible, so more videos out...

    I actually think they should just forget auto orientation change, basically just have it always locked, and get rod of hardware and software lock buttons. It frustrates me when it changed the orientation when I don't want it to. I think it should be controlled by multitouch rotation. Not as fast if your holding the iPad regularly and wan a change orientation, but I think it's better than dealing with the lock and it rotating on you when it shouldn't.

    I like how you can rotate images in the photo app. Idk why that hasn't been implemented throughout the os. I think I heard it's throughout the touch nano*? Do u think it's coming to all iOS devices?

    Hope not. The 6th generation nano is a sad excuse for a product. Sure it looks cool, but wheres the fincationalty. could main stream users work it? would they even know about it? Couild they do it easy? Idk. I know if you get too much multi touch then the product will become gimmicky

    Right solution is switch is programmable to either mute or rotate lock.

    Hope not? I don't care for the nano itself, but it feels more like a gimmick to control orientation via accelerometer.

    My iPad 2

    *Faster Processor, More RAM

    As the OP said.

    *Both Front and Rear Cameras

    I'm sure it won't cost much to add both, and besides the competition has both. You never know when it might be useful.

    *Stereo Speakers

    =Better Sound

    *HDMI out

    For netflix and movie support.

    *Wireless N

    *Better Multitasking for iPad, would be nicer considering the screen size.

    if they make the ipad with high resolution screen like iphone4 or better, add a camera, better sound and processor....as well as multitasking

    and, a slightly larger frame, without the wasted black space..maybe less..

    i would buy. otherwise i'm fine alternating between my macpro and iphone.

    Exactly. A simple settings option

    I disagree. Orientation lock on the side seems more logical as you can have an option to lock it, rather have to worry about moving your fingers around whjen you are doing multitouch in other programs.

    I did a search and couldn't find anything so if this has been posted, then I apologize.

    I thought I'd create a topic for an iPad 2 wish list. I received my current 64GB iPad Wi-Fi only model as a gift last spring. I love it, and with 4.2 I fell its going to be a lot better.

    But we all have a felling come spring 2011 the iPad 2 will come out. Here are some of my things I hope to see on the list. Note none of them are in order.

    1. Faster processor + 512MB of ram


    No brainier here. I have a felling the iOS 5 for iPad will support multi user log in, so a faster processor and more memory would be needed. Plus with multi-tasking and streaming (iTunes streaming in Sept. 2011????) it would be a welcome addition.

    2. Front camera only

    I see no point in having a rear camera. Front camera would be great for facetime and possible 3rd party chat programs

    3. SD Card reader

    not a biggie, but it would be nice to have one and not have to buy an overpriced adapter

    4. New design


    Yes, the current design is nice. But I often set the iPad down flat on table and I get the wobble effect each time I touch the screen. Flat back. More iPhone 4 like design.


    5. Haptic Feedback


    With an option to turn it off of course


    6. GSM/CDMA dual band option



    Recently there was an article stating a possible dual band option for the iPad. I think this is a great idea, as long as all carriers have the option as pay as you go


    7. Smaller Bezel.
    Yes, I know the bezel is used for your hands, but to me, it seems like wasted space.


    8. PHYSICAL ORENTION LOCK SWITCH.
    Nuff said. Even an option to toggle it as a mute switch would be fine, just give us the PHYSICAL ORENTION LOCK SWITCH!


    9. If possible, more colors or higher res screen.


    Not sure if this could be done,. But I would love to see a bit more color added to the screen or even a higher res. I know Retina wont happen for some time, but more colors would be welcomed change, but not a major requirement.

    I'll add more later if I come up with more, but what are some of your wishlists?
    What he said.

    To satisfy as many people as possible, I think both should be options. And maybe multi touch screen rotate, when on, could be limited by app. I understand that it could mess up a game or something else, maybe devs could choose weather to include it. I think it would be good for all stock apps and the home screen.

    The most annoying thing to me is trying to use the ipad on it's side. To lock it a certain way, u have to put it upright in whatever orientation u want, lock it, then bring it back sideways. And that's at least a third of my use case.

    Had a thought: it would be nice to have two programs up, side by side while in landscape. With my tablet PC I would have a PDF on one half and a note taking program open in the other half. With the iPad I can only do one at a time so I have to have a separate notebook when reading articles I want to take notes about.

    you really have to take a look at ALL users, not just those who want gestures and "cool" eye candy. Do a certain percentage of iPad users want or even care for that stuff, or do they want a product that just works.

    and as far as I know, the iPad works all four ways you don't need it to be placed a certain way to "lock it"

    that may happen once dual core comes in to play,

    I was thinking just the same thing while using my pad last weekend. We have the screen real estate to use a split screen in landscape and, gee, portrait too if it's split top / bottom. It would also be a good sales point that the iPad has the room for two screens at once where the smaller Android tabs like the Galaxy does not.
