After extensive use of my parents iPad 2 (superb device), I have simply concluded it is too big and heavy for my needs. Besides size, it is also a too heavy to hold single handed for too long. I have/use an iPod Touch 4G and is wonderful, but it is too small for some the apps I wan to use it for. My ideal iPad-P (pocket) 8" screen (more or less) 7.7" +/- on the long side 5" +/- width (so I can easily grasp it with one hand) 1280x960 or 1280x800 resolution, depending on the device dimension. All the abilities of iPad 2 (which will be old version by then) 768MB of RAM plus compass, high-megapixel back camera with flash. miniSD slot 0.9 Lb max weight. I expect shorter battery life (obviously), but if it can manage 2/3 the time compared to full size (10 inch) I will be happy.
