    With iOS 5 right around the corner I am interested to see what your most anticipated feature is.

    Personally I can't wait for the new multigestures on the iPad 2. I see it like this: I'm working on a keynote project over luxury cars and want to find out more information. I open up Safari and do my research, then with a quick swipe I'm back in keynote, putting in the necessary information to make my project shine.

    What can't you wait for?

    iMessage. PC free would be nice but it doesn't mention movies or using my own PDFs or aperture library unless a hybrid sync is supported.

    Just installed the GM, pretty impressed by Safari's performance on the ipad2. On wifi page rendering seems miiiiles faster, much more comparable to laptop browsing ie press link, page fully rendered in far less than half a second (can vary obviously).

    I may not be the best judge of its speed on the iPad though, I've been using iCab for an age. Jury is out, but now Safari has tabbed browsing I may stick with it. Not mad keen on the decision to activate the search bar whenever you press the plus sign for a new blank tab though.

    Love the split keyboard. Shortcuts (both phone and pad) are useful too - didn't know anything about them, u can setup shortcuts for phrases. I'm using a 3 letter one to spit out my email address for logins for example.

    Small gripes - couple of things I don't like about the music app (unless I'm missing something and there's some way to change these);

    -the inability to customise the boxes that link to different audio types eg Playlist, Songs, Artists, Albums then More. Podcasts are the only thing I listen to on my iPad, annoying that I have to press More, then Podcasts to view them.

    -can't view Podcasts in list view anymore, only the....what's the name of it?....cover view with big square tiles.

    I kinda want to see what Newstand will offer me. I am not yet heavily invested in Zinio ... I'd like more newspapers or something in that flavor. I would have already gotten the WSJ, however recent reviews of that app are very poor.

    That is easily the best part to me...in practice. iMessage is good too, no more hunting for the phone when my gf texts.

    I use an Android(HTC Thunderbolt) device for my phone and an iPad 2 for my tablet and I'm stoked about having Android type notifications on my iPad. IMO, it's going to make the iPad close to perfect. Not that I hate the pop-ups, but man they do interrupt me sometimes. The pulldown is sweet on Android and I expect the same for iOS5.

    I just installed the GM right now. Aside from the notifications my favorite is the gestures. No need to use the home button at all. It makes navigating that much quicker. The split keyboard is great too. Just need some practice to get fast again :)

    Installed the GM yesterday and it works like a breese. Safari is much better now, and i'm not seeing the checkerbord anymore. It renders a lot better then before, and shows that software is definitly as important as hardware.

    The tabs are a blessing as well. Combined with multi gestures, everything has a certain flow to it now.
