    I would love arrow keys on the keyboard! I just can't understand why there aren't any! If I see a typo in a word I've just typed, it's a lot easier (and faster!) to press the appropriate arrow to position the cursor where you want it, rather than having to press and hold to position manually. Especially if you click slightly in the wrong position to just press backspace: arrow keys would be a great help. No strike that: I think they're essential!
    The special characters are positioned okay I find, although I'd definitely prefer numbers and letters to appear together on the one keyboard without needing additional keys. This is especially true if typing something containing a large mixture of numbers and letters.
    Some keyboard shortcut for selecting text would be very useful, like the shift or ctrl arrow style ones in windows. It would make selecting large amounts of text significantly faster for those who wish to use, and are comfortable with, this way of doing things. I seriously hope this finds its way to apple.

    Why limit it to browsers. The ability to choose a decent eMail client would be a great asset, as would the inclusion of more modern eMail security, such as TLS rather than the old SSL protocol.

    Unlimited Bluetooth access
    Multiple browser compatibility
    Not having to go through iTunes to sync all the time.
    File sharing over wifi (without having to buy wifi hd etc)

    This ain't gonna happen but this is where other tablets gain points.

    What do you mean by unlimited Bluetooth access? Not too familiar with it as I only use bluetooth for tethering phone to iPad. Thanks.

    Yes to the Swype addition. Also restore full capability to the iPod player, including equalizer. Add widgets and allow more customization of screen layout.

    To the people who have asked to flash, I think it's fair to say that flash will never be on iOS devices as they slow down the user experience.

    Also adobe have stopped developing flash for mobile devices.

    Would it be too much to ask for the iPad to function as a telephone? Mine is always with me and if I were able to make calls with it, I could dump my iPhone and save money.

    I always use Bluetooth, so I wouldn't be faced with having to hold an iPad to my ear, just in case anyone was getting that visual.

    I already use it for FaceTime, iMessage and Skype, so telephony, it seems to me, is not such a long shot.

    It's been mentioned so many times but I agree with- having numbers and letters on the keyboard and user profiles is the biggie. Someone mentioned apples work around is to by an iPad for each family member. Come on! My 9 year old kids should have their own iPad?? I don't think apple employees have a iPads for all their family members.
