Why is this important ? Because when I am in the field I don't have Internet access on my laptop. I don't need Numbers destroying the formatting on Excel files that I have to email daily.

Of course a 'big boy' office suit (MS are listening ?) would be nice. Not the dumbed down mobile crap, but a real desk top equivalent.
You're using it wrong. You need a laptop. A laptop tethered to a smartphone or with an internal cellnet card.

Sounds like you're trying to use a tablet for more than designed for, probably like many, simply because its the new hip thing.

Uh,being able to manage files without iTunes which is a steaming pile of dung isn't unreasonable. I can easily do it on an Android tablet,and I honestly can't understand why Apple can't implement a reasonable solution. The fact that I can't attach files with the mail app or simply drag and drop a document without going through a convoluted process involving iTunes(did I mention how much it sucks?) is pretty ridiculous.

built in video out of some sort. None of that annoying dock cable, and definately not airplay mirroring.

Because they don't want to. Its not within the vision of their design. Then get an android tablet, no one is twisting your arm. Again you're using the wrong device for the task.

I for one once had an old Windows Mobile with real file system, it was a clunky pile of ****. I welcome the change, its pros as well as the cons.

In business, laptop is necessary. In personal life, dropbox has been plenty.

- Retina display
- More RAM (Safari crashes on me a lot due to insufficient memory)
- A6 processor and better graphics
- 5mpx+ camera on rear, maybe better front camera but I doubt it.
- Redesign I don't really care for, if they have to make it a bit thicker to fit in a retina display I wouldn't mind

And possibly a 7-inch Kindle Fire competitor, however that may have to wait until 2013.

That's what I do. I hook up my phone to my laptop as a USB device and and send them from my phone. Which is why when I finally decided to get a smartphone, it was a new BBOS7 Blackberry. I bought it, my choice.

Have you tried "Filer"?
Not yet, but looking into it. Thanks.

That's Some List!

What one hardware item do you want to see iPad have?

This does not consider a 7.x inch "iPad mini", just features.

SD slot (FULL SIZE)
Mini-SD slot
USB (keyboard, USB drive)
More memory (128gb)
3+ MP back Camera
Back and/or Front camera LED light
Smaller or lighter
Stereo speakers
Stand mount hard point (screw hole, notch, tab, etc)
Ambient temperature
Radiation detector
Tachyon accelerator
Blago analyzer


PS: Retina Screen is a given.
I went for the mini sd slot...That would be handy. Unsure about portable Tachyon accelerators, could become unstable:D

I would disagree about the retina screen being a given. For that reason I chose "other". Really the only two things I want from the iPad 3 is a retina screen and a Facetime HD camera on the front. I would be happy with only those two improvements.

Poll is junk without 7.85" option.

Personally I'm holding out for retina and maybe 3-d. Jobs' Pixar makes great 3-d movies that you can't play in 3-d on an Apple product.

SD slot is worthless. All the good cameras use CompactFlash. Everyone I know has to use the USB port adapter and basically ditch the senseless SD one.

Even better, dont clutter and uglify it with expansion ports.

I'm gonna use phone or real camera for photos. Rear would can be totally cut, just leave face camera for video conf.

Retina display or bust.
I agree. All the SLR's I have use CF. Only point and shoot cams use SD.

Browser and gta 3 to crash less.

Maybe an samoled+ screen.

I don't really think the current iPad is missing anything.
Does it crash a lot on the iPad 2? I own it on the Mac and was thinking about purchasing on iOS (any difference besides touch controls)?

My fianceé has it and hers doesn't crash at all, but mine crashes a lot. I've attempted the current mission about five times and every time it just closes back to the home screen.

My Nikon D90 uses SD cards. While it may not be a professional level camera, it's certainly not a point and shoot either.

In fact Nikon uses SD only all the way up to the D7000 (which has dual slots). The D300s has both a CF and SD slot.

Other: An optional, relatively fine-tipped active stylus. This would be a major boon for drawing, note taking, and image editing on the iPad. It would not replace the standard finger input. Just supplement it. With the ability to electonically distinguish between finger and pen it could even open the door to unique interface methods. Like in a drawing app you could use two fingers to dynamically place a virtual ruler which the pen's line would then "snap" to. Or in any app with text you could drag the stylus across to make an immediate selection.

Now I know third are third party active styluses coming out soon. At last one of which will supposedly have a decent level of app support. But pretty much everyone would be jumping in line to support an official Apple product. It could even have basic support at the operating system level.

---

The camera connection kit fills my SD card needs. The only thing is that it would be nice if you could preview pictures in full screen before transferring them. But then that's just a software issue.
I'd like this. As of now, the iPad is useless for taking notes - all that's missing is a good stylus of some kind. I've bought one (alupen), but it's far too imprecise to make pages of notes with formulas etc.

I'd like retina-display too, of course.

The things in the list: nothing I really feel I need/really want.

The only thing I can think of to make my ipad2 more user friendly would for it to be less fragile. I wouldn't mind if apple beefed the body up, made it rubberised perhaps or, better still , made it waterproof.
