    As the title says...what would you like to see in iOS 5 for iPad , which should be released next year, that's not in iOS 4.2.1 now?

    Lock screen widgets?

    Multiple users? Etc

    I think a USB port would be super! We could use printers, keyboards, external storage, etc.

    I invest in equities and options. I have used my iPad and laptop for this purpose. iPad since march 2010. I like the iPad because I can access Internet from the car on the interstate anywhere (I have 3G). I investigate companies constantly. BUT the lack of flash restricts me to no end!!! I am constantly running into breaking news that is done with a video I cannot watch. Please consider this frustration among us users. Thank You.

    Flash is never going to happen.

    Now as for me:

    1.) Fix the switch so that it is back to the proper function of Screen Lock.
    2.) Animated Backgrounds would be great! ( Like Androids Live Wallpapers )
    3.) Fix the shorter Battery Life that 4.2.1 created.
    4.) More Keyboard Options ( Number keys in the right spot instead of a new keyboard )

    Those are the major things IMHO.

    Battery life is no different on the iPad since upgrade. Non of my friends or clients have had any reduction I still get 9 plus hours a day. So maybe you have an app or email setting that is incorrect. My brightness level is midway default

    Wrong. Sorry but the battery life has decreased on iPhone 4 and iPad since 4.2.1 was installed.

    I am sorry that you do not see that. :(

    Graffiti "keyboard" like the one on my Android phone.

    This is such a big deal that instead of an iPhone 4 my next phone will be a Nexus S, which will replace my Epic 4G. I really don't want to dump my iPad too.

    A single location to store documents. For example, when you edit a document in two different apps, you create a copy of that document twice. Where is the latest version?

    How about some sort of video camera support like the iPhone 4? I know the 4G will have it, but what about the 3G units? :ipad-keyboard:

    I know its an OS question but an upgraded iPad may offer more software options if the cpu is improved and or the ram doubled.

    Under those circumstances flash might be a selectable option for those willing to sacrifice battery life. ofc pigs might fly.

    Certainly like the idea of a unified document repository though.

    On my iPhone I lost two hours, on my iPad I lost 3. This was with nothing at all in the so called fake multitasking bar thingy and bluetooth off.

    I reverted back to the previous firmware on my ipad....tested it again....got those 3 hours back.

    I may be wrong but the only change was the iOS version.

    I would like the ability to have multiple user accounts, hide folders and apps, I would also like arrows on the keyboard for moving my cursor up and down.
