    So what do you guys think will be in the iPad 2? I'm thinking the new Retna display will make it in. Cameras for sure. Maybe a 3d display. Gyroscopes for sure. Plus all the features currently included.

    What you listed, plus lighter, that new glass in the iPhone, and probably faster data speeds.

    Actually the retina display is the IPS light display.

    The iPad uses an IPS display which is also what HP uses in it's $2500 Dream Color professional displays.....don't expect the screen to get much better.

    I dont care about camera....but im sure it will pop in there. It already has full accelorameter/clinometer/compass

    Nope, the retina display is 326 pixels per inch, the human eye can only see 300. You can't see the pixels on the new iPhone, I can clearly see them on my iPad.

    Everything that you said, except 3D (if you mean like with special glasses or something). If it's the 3D display that moves with the gyro, then that's a bird of a different feather... :p

    Basically, would want to see everything that the iPhone 4 has include the same steel ring and front/back glass design. Minus the cellular transceivers.

    I don't think it'll ever include a slot for expansion. Here's why:

    They'd never sell more than the low end model, and therefore make less money. Everyone would by the 16GB and go buy their own expansion cards.

    Easily addressed. Platform limits: a 16G can only add 8G, a 32 can only add 16G, and a 64G is openended. Thus a low end buyer can't achieve the next level, but the top model is open up to some defineable hardware limit

    Far too complicated. Apple won't do it....it takes a hell of a lot of engineering behind the scenes to include a slot like that. Look at the new iPhone, they had to relocate and move to a micro-sim just so they can fit in all the parts along with the new larger battery.
