I don't think people would use their ipad 10 hours in one day (i have before but its rare) so im not sure why better battery life is a big thing, at least for the ipad its not imo. Do you run out of battery on yours before you sleep?
Yes, I sometimes wind up recharging my iPad Mini during the day. It all depends on what I'm doing.

To be clear the is recharging the iPad during the day when in the morning it had 90% or more charge. So while the battery is a decent life, I do wish for more.

I'm trying to sell my iPad 3 now so that I may enjoy my new iPad Mini until the (hopefully!) iPad 5 comes out.

What will push me towards the 5? I'd get the 64gb wifi, but would want the same body/bezel style as the Mini. My only other requirement is a battery as good as the Mini (looking for that 13-14 hour range). Hopefully making the new iPad thinner won't affect battery life!

Screen tech that makes the black text darker on the (sometimes) too white background.

Fair enough, i believe however it has the best IRL battery out of all tablets. I wouldn't mind a battery increase but i would rather it be lighter and maybe 128 GB storage

anyone? anyone? I was enthusiastic about surface and win8, but surface pro release will confirm the win8 paradigm implosion. Once blue stacks or some other android app player gets traction, the whole rational for an additional ecosystem dissloves. Why will anyone build a win8 tablet. Pc os's crossed the good enough threshhold 12 years ago...who really cares about apple or ms pc os updates?

If Apple can put the IGZO display in the ipad5 then I think they could make a lighter and thinner ipad without upping the price.

The screen might cost them more to buy but that will be offset by the smaller batteries required.Li po batteries are not cheap.

I doubt Apple will make an ipad with more battery life.Ten hours of real world use is enough for 95% of users.They are not going to sacrifice size and weight to appeal to those 5%.Size and weight is going to appeal to more people than getting 15 hours use out of it between charges,although I have managed to get that doing just surfing with no gaming with the brightness at 30%.
