First, I wish they would release an iPad around 8.7 to 8.9 inches. A nice medium size. Too many times the Mini is great to hold but the screen isn't large enough. And with the Air the screen size is great but gets tiresome to hold for hours of non stop use. Secondly, I really wish they would at least offer more than one type of back on the iPad. The metal is slippery and cold in your hand. Maybe they could offer a "Premium" model with, I don't the right term, but with a nice rubbery-plastic backing like the Nexus 7 2013 has (regardless of what you think of the Nexus 7 as a tablet, if you ever held one you know how incredible it feels in your hand). Between my son, wife and myself we have six tablets (3 iPads, 3 androids) so I am fortunate enough to get to use different tablets ranging in various sizes on a regular basis and see each tablet's strengths and weeknesses. If Apple were to release an upcoming tablet with the two things I am hoping to see, in my eyes at least, it would be the perfect tablet.
