    I think the next gen iPad is going to be really nice. I definatly think the front camera is true. The horizontal dock connector seems a little strange.

    Apple's second generation products are always much better than their first generation ones. The iphone 3G and ipod touch 2G were improved a lot.

    I have high-hopes for the next iPad.

    Well, I don't know why anyone would want to dock it, but if they did, it would be nice to have a choice of horizontal/vertical, and also be able to have an accessory (camera connector) attached to the other slot.

    People complain about the iPad dock not being able to dock vertically. Then it get's a patent for one. What more do you want? A diagonally dock?

    Well the same case could be argued for why anyone would want to dock a iphone or iPad. Many third party docks allow you to dock the iPad horzantally, so why not apple?

    I rather see a SD card slot added rather then have the use for a over priced accessory.

    So you hope it's a light sensor and not a camera?
