    I've been telling myself to wait for the 2nd gen iPad to buy one, but I'm thinking about it and what could they even change?

    I had the first gen ipod touch but then upgraded to the 2nd gen ipod touch just because the speaker and the volume buttons, but there really wont be anything big like that on the 2nd gen iPad.

    There really isn't too much they can change (hardware-wise) on the iPad, is there?

    Camera, more ram, better speakers, better CPU, better GPU, better processor

    I wouldn't use the camera at all, I'd just use my phone's camera instead. Is the speaker on the ipad crappy or something?

    Apparently if you put it up full there is quite a distinct hissing noise

    There's a ton they could do, by next year they will probably have about a 2Ghz chip processor and easily 1GB of RAM, as well as probably a better speaker, maybe a camera, and probably have better internet chip. (the one on the first one seems to have a lot of problems connecting from what I've heard, mine hasn't had a problem though.)

    I wanna dream big, Id say itll have TWO cameras (user facing webcam and 5 mp+ on back for cam/pics)

    It will also have usb/ethernet ports and a flip out keyboard and it will run leaopard

    Instead of iPad, they will call it macbook

    I don't think apple will put a camera on the back of the iPad, but I do think that they will put one on the front.

    I think the screen size will remain the same, but they might switch to OLED.

    Also, they will add more processing power, better gpu, new OS, thinner and lighter than ever... I imagine that having a more compressed battery could reduce the weight by half while retraining the same battery life.

    I hope they stick with the aluminum backing, it's just about perfect. I'm also hoping they add the aluminum backing to the new iPod touch, maybe that's just wishful thinking.
