    I’ll expect the camera, and display to be much better. But what would be nice is if the Air Drop on the Mac could drop files onto the iPad.

    I want a SD card reader, a USB connector, the ability to record a movie in low resolution to avoid filling the memory in no time, a better battery, and best of all a decent price so that it matches competition. Thanks to forward to Apple. :)

    easier use of the photo stream and cloud

    I agree with Frank, Airdropping to an iPad would be brilliant!
    I think faster, longer battery, thinner and better camera are to be expected.
    I don’t think that there will be an SD card slot as they are trying to push for iCloud.
    I think that they will keep the iPad 2 but at 3/4 of the current price (similar to how the iPhone 4 and 4S and priced to help blow away some of the competition).
    And of course, Siri for the 3G iPads only, as a constant internet connection and exact location are required.

    Expandable memory, or at least the ability to play movie files from an SD card or a usb stick, highly unlikely, but I can dream!!

    In respect to iPad 3, I suggest you improve the Safari app as Firefox seems better and more functional.
    I also suggest you look at incorporating word processiong and spreadsheet abilities and allow document design on the iPad.

    I would have bought an iPad for my wife, nursing professor, some time ago but for the fact that it does not have a USB port or support Microsoft Office. Without these two abilities I do not consider the iPad, business wise, ready for prime time. It remains primarily an entertainment device.

    Contrary to popular belief the world is not 100% WiFi. Try transferring to a coworker a copy of your Power Point presentation without these additions.

    Adobe flash player would be GREAT!

    All the above sound great, but my girlfriend wants a mouse as she has very long fingernails……….. I know the answer, but other wise she is PurrFECT.

    But i have been taking my iPad to bed lately but I may roll on it so please hurry with the upgrade 3! Please don’t call it the 2s or something…… bill

    Straight USB would be very nice indeed (though you can already download SD-cards via an -adaptor). Don’t need a camera update, though; heck, a simple pocket-cam does its job ten times better! What about a playlist without pictures? But mostly: Flash! Pleeeeeze!

    need the ability to access your iTunes movie library from a location other than your own wifi. such as when you are on a trip or vacation. also Siri of course.
    also the competition is cheap because there product is not up to the same standard.
    I have tried them the OS in the others. sucks.

    USB connector would be useful, even if via an adaptor – that must be possible, surely. Faster obviously, bigger internal memory. Airdrop maybe – I use Dropbox, so this not really an issue. Flash is being dropped by Adobe, so I think this might be retrograde with HTML5 becoming the standard. Price is competitive given the competition – if you want MS – buy an android clone, Pages is actually MUCH more flexible than Word – Numbers can be difficult to do some things – but most people (me included) know the MS products and cannot be bothered to learn to use the Apple equivalents – Keynote is easier than PP, and much, much better – threes are all available on the iPad.

      What about the USB on the camera adapter?

    2/23/12 @ 12:19 pm

    Flash player

    That has nothing todo with an iPad 3. iCloud is used between all platforms and is certainly not specific to an iPad.

    An automatic internal email video converter rather than download,upload then re-download to watch the email videos in other codecs. Either an App format or built staright into the OS would be an excellent edition to the Ipad3.

    * Auto email video codec converter
    * Flash player
    * 3G & 4G Facetime capabilities

    I think they will have LTE or 4G becaue of the high badwidth demands. I would love to have file management where I can create folders and save files.

    I’ve started using reminders to create an inventory of my freezer and other things in my home, it is totally dingin’. i would love the app to be developed as an inventory tool with colours and symbols. I run a private practice by myself and a home, the ipad keeps me organised with much less effort and i have no need of an accountant or secretary. A home inventory is the next thing for all those small essentials that I only need once a year or so but take so much time to find, thanks

    An easier to change battery or Thin auxiliary power packs and an auxiliary jack to plug them into.
    This would give the users chance to keep up with the ever changing battery technologies.

    I would really really really like a USB to a printer/scanner.
