ipad 3,4,5,etc etc
just a bit curious.
what direction is there the future of the ipad will probably go in? i ask because it took several releases of the ipod Touch until the 'wow factor' of new hardware finally kicked in and stopped.
The ipad is more or less a big Touch on speed. but, we're at version 2 and already the elements are all attached. ie, cameras, dual chip, etc etc
so other than the obvious retina display, what future options are left out there for the ipad to evolve into over the years? ok, the chip will get faster, the screen might get finer, the ram will increase, cameras get better, more flash memory and othere bits and bobs. this is expected and much wanted, but it's not, in my opinion, ground breaking wow stuff like the jumps in the Touch were.
Apple claim this is the beginning, but im really interested to hear what possible future exciting things we might or can expect on future ipad releases.
what do you think? will be just see 'updates' or something more 'exciting' ?

-Easier photo synchronization and organization
-No need to activate via iTunes, MobileMe will become the backbone of all iOS devices
-Improved Airplay and updated AirPort Express which supports Dolby Digital 5.1
-Filemanager for iOS devices, or a Mac OS version on touch tablets.
There are probably a lot more things to improve upon
thinking about it a HUGE thing for me in the software would be the ability, as you say, to either wirelessly sync AND /or the ability to upgrade firmware and whatever without itunes.
i cant stand itunes, and would love to stay mobile with my ipad without the need, and it is a need, to go back to itunes it every now and then. i cant understand now why we cant upgrade firmware directly to our devices.
I bet there will be some kind of 3D tech in the next couple of iPads. Just like the 3DS and you will be able to turn it on and off. I just don't see how they can make it any thinner! Imagine it being nearly as thin as paper and being able to hold it straight horizontal with your thumb and one finger!
Imagine a foldable/rollable see-through iPad

They will probably keep them separate though.
anyone got any idea on this concept? this is probably the biggest 'want' for me personally

The iPad will be that, an apartment filled with Apple wood furniture and integrated electronics built by Apple. The whole surface of the walls will be a giant display that you'll be able to control by your thoughts.
That will be the coolest iPad!

First a statement by Dell today by "Apple insider" from Dell
"Dell is hedging its bets when it comes to tablet operating systems. “…Our strategy is multi-OS," Lark said. "We will do Windows 7 coupled with Android Honeycomb, and we’re really excited. We think that giving people that choice is very important.”
The current ios will continue to grow making it faster better and using cloud services to sync and back on an Ipad however I would not be surprised at all if Apple releases a larger touch tablet like the Macbook Air with both iOS installed plus OSX and the ability to operate Windows OS The latter making it the ultimate tablet for corporations and business alike.
Any thing Dell can do Apple will do better
More and more uses will not purchase low end PC's instead buy Ipad type devices and for more advance uses the ultimate tablet will be there first choice ..
There will always be a need for a computer for so called Power users and techies, just so in case yu think I missed it
Just a thought..........open for discussion

To answer your question this is almost ready to Rock and Roll

The sheer size of Apple's data center has ignited speculation that the company is planning a large expansion of its cloud computing endeavors. Apple's recent acquisition of Lala is believed to involve a web-based version of iTunes, potentially allowing users to manage content directly from an Internet browser rather than relying on the current software
