    No one knows except. Steve jobs so there is no answer to your question . Rumors persist however they are rumors not until the product is released by Apple will you know all inwill say it will be a big advance on the current iPad as thatl has been proven on past releases of products from Apple.

    Hopeful there will be real Multi Tasking on all applications not only the music.
    Hope the Safari will have Tabs.
    More Book shelves. I want one Magazine bookshelf for me, and one for my wife.
    Where and how can I hide those Magazines I don't want my kids to see ?
    Bottom line evry one can dream up some ideas. At Apple they probably have hundreds or thousands of nice to have stuff for next iPAD2

    A few things are very likely. A forward facing camera is #1 due to the push for FaceTime with all Apple mobile devices. It will be thinner and lighter due to thinner glass. Most predict a higher resolution screen, but probably not up to iPhone 4 resolution. Apple is a signee to the manufacturers resolution to go to the mini-USB charging standard, and it will be required in Europe very soon, so expect some form of that, but it may not have any other functions besides charging.

    Other possibilities are a front facing camera, a faster processor, and more RAM. I would guess that there are a lot of software upgrades that will have the most significance to users.

    One of the biggest problems for developers is supporting the three different resolutions currently available. If Apple adds yet another display resolution it will have to provide developers a way to handle the change without having to change all of their assets. Plus the need for more RAM and a faster more expensive video chip set.

    For those reasons I do not believe Apple will make any significant changes to the display next year.

    The iPad we have now is 1024x768, iPhone 4 is 960x640. So we already have a higher resolution screen, but it doesn't look like it due to screen size difference. It does need a bump up in resolution though to keep up with the higher resolution tablets coming in early 2011.

    Obviously Apple spends a lot of time and money on market research and analysis. At the present time, they have a net worth of over $222 billion dollars which puts them ahead of Microsoft with a puny net worth of only $219 billion dollars. As a matter of fact, their net worth is even greater than the GDP of the entire country of Ireland! Taking all of these things into consideration, it would appear as if the marketing people at One Infinite Loop are doing their job quite well without our input!

    Yeah in house testing by geeks sure beats fan fantasies.....

    The great selling point for tablets is their portability and speed.
    Once they start trying to emulate desktop machines with complex functions and software, most of these advantages would be lost.

    Be careful what you wish for ....

    Two cameras? You think? Somehow I think it will only end up with a front facing camera for FaceTime.

    Well, that would certainly be different for Apple to do.

    The next generation iPad was fully mandated a long time ago. The only way it could have changed was some amazing new discovery that was found two months ago, or whatever lead time they needed to find a supplier and incorporate it into the design. There are two ways that changes are made. Surveys of users and design technicians who promote the different criteria the would like are the initial method. Then it goes to the technicians who fabricate the various test mules, which then go out into the real world among a few trusted testers. At any point, flaws will be corrected, and bad components replaced or eliminated.

    I also have doubts about two cameras. Front facing is useful. Rear facing is not practical. There are reports of a built in gyroscope with the next unit, and that may open possibilities.

    Tabbed browsing etc...wouldn't that come in when a new iOS update is launched? Just like "find text in webpages" was in iOS 4.2?
