    I am wondering what you guys think. I would love to see it come down to the 1 pound mark in weight, but I am not sure about it being any thinner. If its too thin the fingers could start aching because it seems gripping something extremely thin for long period of time is not as comfortable as if it has a bit of size to it. I am not sure if science will back this up, but it just feels that way.

    As far as I know, the weight is mostly because of the battery. So they'd needy to make significant battery improvements to get the weight down more.

    When technology allows a smaller power source other than what is now used size will change but frankly I believe The iPad is about where it will be even with the next generation coming next year.

    I think the I pad 2 is near perfection. A better display is all I can ask for that is if some one insists that I make some demand from. Apple lol.

    Well, its near perfection, but the type of display is not good. e-ink doesnt cause headache, and this60hz flashing screen with backlight does. It would be a gerat improvement to somehow implement eink for reading webpages or books, and the backlight would be turned off than. The thing which annoys me is that when I pull down the backlight level the black letters also become darker, so it doesnt help with the too bright white blacklight. I want this to be more natural, and the lcd screen is bad for the eye.

    If its lighter and also thinner, its easier to hold because you dont feel its gonna break apart.

    I would agree with this. The display is "good" but the other tablets are mostly better in this regard. At least get an HD resolution on there....

    To my knowledge, none of the other displays that size have the resolution of the iPad. The inability of Samsung and others to mass produce higher definition display for the iPad in significant numbers is one of the issues that may hold up the iPad 3. I have heard very few people complain about the quality of the displays, and in most cases, the complaints are from the quality of the picture itself. If you look at a low res picture, the screen is not going to make it better.
