    I would like to see better built in sound on all small devices, I mean at least get a half decent set of speakers or leave them out all together and give us a jack. Reply

    Treat them as the mobile computing device they are and allow for a free selection / installation of operating systems and updates.
    On both PCs and Laptops you can install an arbitrary OS and apps, so why not on a tablet?

    I don't expect to listen to music from my phone, but I do require a clear speakerphone at a decent volume level.

    On tablets, though, yeah the mono speaker on the iPads is a little annoying if you happen to cover it with your hand. Stereo would be a nice little upgrade to combat this, but the quality is pretty good for integrated speakers.

    Your point about leaving out speakers altogether is important to note because speaker magnets can add a bit to weight, I think, but I don't want to have to plug in a set of headphones each and every time I want to just see a quick embedded YouTube video. Even crappy speakers have their place.

    I'd love to see high res displays similar to Apple's retina display. Being able to see clear text and pictures is great! The gorilla glass is wonderful too as I don't need a screen protector.

    Next gen, 3D displays would be nice as well. With a relatively fixed focal point, they should be possible without glasses. I believe Nintendo is doing something similar with their handheld.

    Hmm, this would probably be highly dependent on position and orientation of the device. I'm not sure what the current devices have, but if the browsers were full blown browsers, instead of the chopped down mobile browsers, then hulu and other online content providers would work on these devices. Android's browser should get a button to go back and forth between like skyfire. Reply

    I'd love to see some sort of "hover" functionality for changing the touch interface from "clicking" when touched to "hovering" the cursor (perhaps a simple modification button like the Mac's "Control-Click"?). While completely unnecessary in the iOS landscape (my preferred platform), it'd be useful for tablets being used more for legacy software (flash, RDC clients, etc.). Reply

    I'm a big fan of the basics. Fancy new features and capabilities are pretty much on a solid rollercoaster so for me to suggest that would be redundant. I want long battery life... long like LONG! I want to use a tablet for at least 3 to 4 days without worrying about plugging it in. Or even better, for it to charge up wirelessly!

    Electronics are all about good clean predictable power. Just like a great power supply will take care of your desktop computer, great power would enable user creativity with the features that are pouring into tablets.

    Going one step further, have a phone that can plug into a larger device (e.g. tablet) that has a larger screen, and than that tablet can plug into a keyboard like device the same way the Transformer does. Here's the kicker though, the tablet/keyboard has additional CPU, RAM, storage, etc resources.

    So your phone is a 2-core system with 512MB memory, 16GB with decent graphics. Plug it into the 'tablet', and get another 2 cores, another 1GB memory, more storage, and a higher end graphics chip to drive the larger display, plus still use the phone's 3g/4g/WiFi connectivity, and be able to receive/send calls using the built-in front facing webcam & mic or webcam & bluetooth headset. Or just the bluetooth headset.

    Plug the phone (or the phone+tablet) into the mobile docking station (e.g. keyboard), and add more CPU cores, maybe some more RAM, and plethora of additional storage plus a pretty good graphics solution.

    Finally, have a fixed, wall powered docking station (maybe keyboard, maybe not, use external usb keyboard, whatever), and add some high clocked CPU cores, gobs of RAM, bunches of storage, and a graphics chip good enough to play some pretty good games via the display (the tablet, all-in-one desktop system, external display, etc) and basically have a pretty full fledged desktop system.

    Now, make all that hot-pluggable :)

    Xoom and recent Tablets has very good technical specs, but something which is missing is the solid build of the device and how much easy to handle the device physically.

    Material has to be solid and need to have accessories (Not the typical keyboard and mouse stuff) like a multipurpose stand/dock station which can fit in anywhere say a Table, Car for Video Viewing, supporting both Horizontal and Veritical mounting , 360 rotatable.
    Tablet should be water and dust proof.

    From the software feature wise we should have something like Panels as in Adam Tablet to have real multitasking.

    The underprivileged children of the world have had cooler gadgets than I have for the past 3 years with the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child).

    The OLPC has mesh networking which works even when the device is (mostly) switched off. It would be great to hook up to the 'local' wifi net to interact with friends/family.

    The OLPC has an awesome dual-mode screen. Full color for indoors, double resolution black 'n white transflective for outdoors. How cool would it be to browse the web from the couch on your Xoom, and then on a nice day take it outside to catch up on some reading, kindle-style?

    Lets get this tried and tested tech into the hands of every one else please.

    I currently use KeePass and it works really well. But the password management on Android (and Chrome OS), pales in comparison. From creating entries, to generating passwords, to working with odd login forms/pop-ups, there's just a big pile of limits. With quality browsers, I can access any site on the 'net with a tablet. But once I get there, let me get in! Lame/repetitive passwords aren't a secure choice, but my hands are tied in some situations. If I can't install a quality password manager, then I need something powerful included in the OS.

    Having Windows 8 on a tablet would presumably address this issue.

    I think the portability of a tablet lends itself to more innovative location-aware services, even utilizing stuff like NFC.

    As in, your buying history used with analytics to alert you via tablet when a store is having a sale or you could pay even LESS than you did last time. Data would probably need to be loaded once a day (refresh), but this lends itself better to phones and tablets, not so much laptops.

    I want it to have an unlocked bootloader, so that it has the possibility of having its usefull lifespan extended. I have the original Motorola Droid and have Android 2.3.3 on it, and have the CPU overclocked. I have heard of some people getting it to run at 1.1GHz, and modifying the voltage, which means us geeks will be able to continue doing fun performance boosters. Reply

    I really want one of these things. I think I could really turn one of these into an awesome home-automation remote control. Also great coffee-table piece for looking things up real quick or sharing a youtube video real quick. I REALLY hope I win.

    As far as what I think should be included in the next generation of tablets: MORE integration with existing PCs (Windows and Mac). I think tablets so far have focused on being stand-alone devices when their best equipped to be extensions of your home computers and network. I can see these things revolutionizing home or building automation, as well as serving other specialized needs (interactive wall console for calendar, email, and notes, etc)

    Thanks Anandtech for a shot to win one of these!

    Hmm, next generation tablet feature I'd like... HOST USB capabilities with a full command shell. As cheap as internal memory is getting, I don't see this as being too space restrictive. Since tablets and smartphones seem to be the main computing devices we'll be seeing or a while, possibly replacing the desktop for many households, It seems more and more needful that users be able to program/tinker with other devices from their tablet. Android tablets may already have this feature, but I don't have one, so I don't know if they do or not. Reply

    I'd like to see USB connectivity (host) to allow for basic editing/viewing of digital camera pictures on the go. I wouldn't mind a slim snap-on keyboard cover/stand that would allow for easier typing on the go, while snapping onto the back when you don't need it. Once we get into 10" tablets, I don't think slimmer is necessarily better, especially if you're just tossing it into a bag anyways.

    And it absolutely has to have an unlocked bootloader. I don't buy netbooks, laptops, or PC's that prevent me from installing whatever OS I want to on them, and I won't spend my hard earned money on a tablet that does either.

    It seems the two-camera theme is catching on, but why don't we just have one camera which can be pointed forwards, backwards, or even up? (specifically, a camera with ~180 degrees freedom on one axis of rotation)

    It seems like a camera pointing "up" would be useful in cases when you wanted to record something while leaving the tablet flat on a surface. Other angles might also be useful in various circumstances.

    This might be considered too year-2000ish (and I haven't read other comments, so hopefully this hasn't been mentioned by too many other people), but I really want a seamless way to enter data into a tablet. Honestly, the virtual keyboard just does not work well with a tablet that is too heavy to comfortably hold with one hand; and even at Kindle weight, the keyboard layout for one handed operation is still awkward. What I want is some amazingly brilliant software for handwriting recognition. There is a lot of effort being spent on voice recognition, but in a loud environment, or equally very quiet, voice recognition is useless. Instead, if I could just simply point to the entry box and start scribbling with my finger the letters and words I want (like I said, reminiscent of Windows hand writing recognition, just done right), then I would find overall interactive experience to be greatly improved.

    Yes, handwriting isn't as fast as typing on a good keyboard, but when talking about holding something the same way you would a pad of paper makes it seem more natural. Plus, the virtual keyboard tends to use a lot of screen real estate - so if the implementation didn't require this gaudy pop up box and you could literally just write (aka webOS "JustType") - then I'd happily use a "slower" interface over an awkward one.

    side note: I would lose a pen - it has to let me use my finger for writing.

That way when you're chillin' in Starbucks surfing their wi-fi, you can casually remark, "Goodness, it's a bit toasty in here (or chilly, or humid, or whatever)" and people will think you're cool. Or they might throw things at you. It's a coin toss....

    I would also like to see an option to use a tablet as just a screen and still get a full OS under the hood. When I travel (and I travel a good bit) I find my laptop is too bulky for use in hotels and planes, and lacks the power I want for games. A tablet has great game options but lacks a good input.

    while it scares the crap out of me, i want my life on the cloud with an extensible portable device that I can add and remove features and performance from though its attachments.

    Docking seems to always be at a slow rate, even through USB3 is certainly a step in the right direction. Although PCI express imposes some very brutal rules for how the connector would be positioned in the dock, and would be difficult to route on top of that, it would allow something like a plug in high speed GPU.

    If GPU compute took off that would mean that you could plug into a dock for vastly increased speed.

    Same as last time: Major change needs to be the cost of the device. $800+ for a tablet is a bit ridiculous! These things will never compare in speed to a full laptop, so you should think of them as a low powered touchscreen with great battery life. For that they should start at $300 and max out at $500 with all the bells and whistles.

    Archos is looking to capture the low end part of the market with their new Arnova 10 and 8 inch models starting at $199 and $149. Once they release the next version with upgraded SOC and Capacitive screens I'll probably buy one. If they work as promised, our company could easily buy a dozen for the same price as a few overpriced XOOM/iPads.

    Responsive user interface. Too often my past mobile devices haven't prioritized the user interface (through the OS design) which leads to awkward interactions.

    One such example? Trying to unlock the screen on a sluggish BlackBerry Storm and accidentally placing an emergency 911 call. If you accidentally press the "Emergency" soft button on the touch screen when the phone is locked, it will switch to an "Are you sure?" screen. When the phone is nearly out of memory (memory leaks abound on the Storm) it can take a second or two for the display to change over, and when it does, the "Yes" button is pretty much lined up with the "Cancel" button that you may be desperately trying to press on the original screen.

    How could it be fixed? Better memory management, better UI design where user input is given priority over anything else. The button presses shouldn't be "queued" across screens. Apple seems to understand this pretty well.

    Actually, more of a regulatory request: I'd like to see companies forced to have bootloaders unlocked, open drivers, and the ability to install whatever OS on these tablets I want. Ship them with one thing, but allow me to do whatever I want with them. Companies shouldn't be allowed to restrict my usage of computer hardware I've paid money for. Sure, you can hack your way around that stuff, but why should you have to on hardware you paid for? Reply

    First and foremost, I am a middle of the road guy when it comes to tablets. I think they are a brilliant concept that will fit in for many different types of business and personal use. I do not think they will ever replace laptops or desktops (especially desktops) but they will replace lower end laptops for the most part.

    One thing I think that tablets are lacking currently that the next gen needs is support for both LCD and eInk technologies on one device. I know there are some models coming around the corner but they aren't here yet. Tablet manufacturers market these devices to people who want to read books on them but LCDs can cause eye-strain over time.

    Another feature I would be interested in a Windows version. I like Android and the iOS but I think Windows would shine on one of these. Maybe an unlocked version that supports multiple OS types?

    I hope I get it. :)

    I'd like to see ratings on apps that tell you how processor/gpu intensive they are or some sort of power rating. The amount of power an application uses for a given function might be a deciding factor on whether to get the free but power hungry app or spend the money on the pay app that is less power hungry. May not be that useful for the newest latest greatest smart phone or tablet but after about 1.5 years that battery is starting to show its age and OS updates tend to make the older hardware start to struggle.

    I'm not sure what I'd particularly want in next-gen tablets. The obvious ones are thinner, but with better battery life. Tablets like the Xoom work fine with bluetooth keyboards which I'd consider a plus for certain types of work that I'd use a tablet for, though that does necessitate another set of batteries.

    Okay, there's an idea. Solar cells on the back so the tablet can trickle charge at all times. Probably not great for full on charging but might improve lifetime between charges.

    By far the biggest drawback to the current lineup of tablet devices is their inputting and productivity capabilities. They are great at entertainment and consumption, but really weak at creation-related tasks like writing papers, etc. The upcoming LePad (with its combination of Android and Windows 7 dual-boot capability) provides the most intuitive solution to this problem that I've seen so far. But to really succeed they need to find a way to render the touch gestures of current tablets to behave in exactly the same way as a mouse on a laptop/desktop. Reply

    --Quality screens that do not fade to near uselessness in bright sunlight

    --Front and rear cameras that have high resolution for each as its positioned use dictates

    --Build quality that can sustain the rigors of high portability and more banging around

    --Better/reliable touch sensitivity control coupled with the ability to connect additional input devices if desired.

    --True high-speed wireless connectivity, to always include 802.11n

    1. Pen input - I see that a very large number of comments have expressed an interest in this (irony meter going off the scale). I too would love pen input, but, like I said before, it has to have pressure sensitivity. A simple binary on/off won't do. Tablets are terrible for things like spreadsheet work, but fantastic as platforms for all types digital art and computer assisted design. Portable Cintiq with its own built-in computer, anyone?

    2. High resolution screens - a must to get work done. 1280x600 is too small. 1280x800 is still too small. 1440x900 is the absolute minimum, but resolutions of 1600x900 to 1920x1200 would be ideal. More space = better workflow. It would also benefit the consumption of media, since we can not presently watch HD content in HD on tablets. Waste of bandwidth.

    3. Connectivity - I saw this one crop up a few times, and I must agree. There is something to be said for Apple's devices having a standard, if proprietary, connector. It means that third party vendors can easily create peripherals like docks or external storage devices. Thunderbolt to the rescue here, perhaps? Whatever the case, a similar attachment point on other devices would be great in the next generation of tablets.

    4. Seamless user interface - Again, like I said earlier, if a device is not easy to use and/or presents glaring issues in performing tasks, it will not do well. I can't say I'm pleased with the stock Android experience, since it isn't as effortless as iOS. However, iOS like OSX feels crippled in comparison to the competition. Right now there is a choice between features and stability where it should be a choice between which one suits your needs better. Google and partners, work on this. I'd like to see what HTC does with the Flyer and its user interface.

    5. Matte screen surfaces. This one is new. With pen input, having some resistance to motion is nice. Even with fingers, a smooth display feels wrong to use. It's like using the textured glass trackpad on Apple notebooks compared against the glossy trackpads on the older, low-end HP notebooks. It's sticky and gross with the latter. A matte screen would feel great to write on and would be resistant to fingerprints.

    6. PixelQi reflective displays, or some kind of passive lighting. If I'm outdoors, I shouldn't need a bright set of lights sucking down juice to see my display. We should be past that. The technology is there, but tablet makers need to embrace it.

    Things like flexible displays and the power of consoles in a quarter-inch-thick device are things I don't expect to see in the next generation. I expect the next generation will finally realise which market it actually is that tablets satisfy. They are currently not more than interesting (and desirable) toys, but they have the potential to be so much more than that. The first iPads and company are only the vanguards to open up the public's eyes to what the form-factor can really do.

    -Standard size USB (I could connect or charge more devices this way if needed be..while this tablet is connected to an AC power supply.)

    -1440x900 resolution(since it is already 16x10, mind as well up it, this will allow me to see with more clarity and fit even more text on the page without having to zoom)

    -more RAM to compensate larger resolution (2GB perhaps?)

    - Quad core CPU (Nvidia's next arm release, was it called Kent?)

    -Perhaps HDMI/Video input(why not use the tablet as a screen, or do-it-all tv...we're always on the go these days and I'd love one device that could do it all)

    -True GPS(if I'm not mistaken it only has the agps system), I would love to use this as a replacement for my Garmin(that way I won't have to squint to read the friggin tiny 4in screen while driving)

    -Perhaps a higher battery to compensate the above spec.

    After I get to a web page, I should have to be constantly touching the screen to just scroll down or up... A small nickle sized touch pad on the side of the tablet so I can use that to highlight text after I place the pointer w/ my finger.... It will also give me the ability to scroll... on pages or zoom in and out based on the direction I rub my finger on it....

    Samsung had one on their windows 6.1 phones that my GF had and it made a joy to use.....

    The tablets already have access to your calendar, your email, your phone, etc. It should be able to tell you when you need to do something, rather than waiting for you to check. Heck, give it a face and a voice, and call it your secretary.

    On the flip side, it would be great if you could talk to it to add things to your calendar, tell it to make a phone call, or send an email.

But I have moved everything I can to the SD card, but still find that after just a few programs run, my phone seems to become lethargic because it is low on memory. The more the new tablets/ smart phones/ PDAs become functional, the more we will try to do with them. why not include a bit more memory? Maybe after i win, I will find that they have already fixed this problem. But I would like to know from first hand experience.

    Something I would like to see in the next-generation of tablets is longer battery life. I like to compute all day (reading articles, watching YouTube, reading email) and it would be nice to not have to remember to charge the battery often. Some days I forget to charge it and I can't use my mobile electronics as long as I would want (sometimes I'm out and about, and I left the charger at home; or sometimes there isn't a place to charge my battery). After a few years of use, batteries don't last as long, and the ability to buy a new battery to replace would be a great idea. A tablet with a short battery life is not a tablet I want. Reply

    Prices need to come down, anandtech needs to get spammed till they revamp their comments. Also, I want "smarphones" without the phone part. Once wireless internet covers as much of the country as cell towers we can all just use VOIP. Seriously, phones are outdated, as well as tv. All we need, ALL I WANT, is internet. I'm mostly interested in 4-5inch tablets, small enough to fit in my pocket. Archos 5, which I have, is really nice. Looking forward to the revamped Archos 4.3 this summer. Roomurs of 3G/4G/Wiimax support. It's not total country coverage yet, but we're getting there; I can't wait for the day I can trash my $6/month burner phone and only carry around my internet tablet. PS phone companies, I will NEVER pay 100+/month for a freaking phone. One bill, 50/month for internet access from any and every device everywhere. Really, the only reason that's not too high is because I'm expecting FIOS speeds. Reply

It doesn't make sense for it to be free, unless it's like 3MBPS, but it should be cheap. Cheap enough that people who are living on 12/hour can afford it AND food and gas and rent. The internet is how we connect, it's how we live our lives, it's how we learn and share and grow as a species. It should not be coveted by rich greedy companies. Make enough to cover expenses, maintenence and expansion and employees, then like 100k/year for the CEO just cause that's how CEO's roll, that's it. Get everyone in the world on it, should be like 1 dollar a month or less; seriously, there's a lot of people on the planet. Reply

    There are a few things that I personally would like to see in a tablet going forward. For one, considering the hardware that is in these devices (cell phone hardware) one of two important things needs to happen, either the price needs to come down to reflect the performance of these devices, or they need to beef up the hardware to correspond with the asking price. The issue I have with todays tablet is that at the price point they are asking, one can get a decent laptop / netbook that will outperform the tablet.

    Another area where one can see improvements to me would be in the area of screen quality. Again, most of this comes down to asking price. I would really like to see a screen that equals the quality of what one would expect at the price asked.

    And finally, the other area I would like to see improvement in is performance overall. All of the tablets I have used to date appear to be sluggish when one attempts to perform multiple tasks. Now again, much of this has to do with the software development but when I use these devices I feel that they appear to be rushed to market. For me, I would prefer a device that appears to perform and feel like a device that has been well thought out and planned instead of a device that feels like it is not complete and rushed out just to beat the competition.

    Just my two cents.

    I think all the new tablets that are coming out with the tegra 2 processor in it are DOA because they do not support high profile h264 videos. I want my tablets to be a jack of all trades and not just strong in one area(gaming). It would be nice to be able to go from playing an awesome tegra 2 supported game to watching an hd movie on the amazing screen. I am pretty sure nvidia will be fixing this in their tegra 3 but for now all of these tegra 2 tablets are fail.

    I hope I am able to win one of these though because it would be an awesome birthday present (which is today) despite the minor flaws that bug me with this tablet.

    I'd like to see better support for different video formats including support for MKV's. I'm actually really excited to see what Microsoft has planned with Windows 8 with regards to tablets. I think it'd be intresting if Microsoft used the same exact OS for both the tablet and PC and allowed it to basically switch on the fly between two UI's. For example a tablet could use a touch frienldy UI when its being used in tablet mode and then when its docked it could switch over to the full desktop UI. I feel like that's the direction we're moving in, there hasn't been a business focused tablet yet, I think the first company that comes up with a tablet which is truly business friendly and that actually promotes prodcutivity will end up a majority of the market in the future.

    My idea stems from how Google is trying to crack down on UI customizations and carrier software. It would allow manufacturers to continue to develop a custom UI (Sense, Motoblur, Touchwiz, etc) but release both their custom interface and the Google interface side by side. This would allow the user to make a choice as to which they would like to run. It would also allow the manufacturer to quickly release updates for the latest Google OS. If the manufacturer decides to spend the time and money they can release an update for their custom interface. This would take some of the delay out of ensuring the custom UI works with the updated OS.

    How I would change the carrier software is give users the ability to uninstall the applications if they so chose to. If the user decides to reinstall the applications they can be found on on the carrier specific area of the Android Market.

    These two changes together would allow manufacturers to release OS updates more quickly and cheaply.

    In particular, the rear display could be a high-clarity e-ink display. That way you get the best of both worlds. Fast refresh rate, high res, bajillion colors on the primary LED/LCD display side. Crisp, high contrast, eye-strain-free, low power e-ink display on the back. You could switch to the e-ink display to read a book or whatever, and switch back to watch videos, play games, etc. Just flip it over and hit a button.

    Whether you use a clear protective layer, or a cover that fits either side, I'm not sure, but I'd lean towards a snap-on cover that can fit over either side.

I actually have higher hopes for Intel cutting down the average power use of an Atom-based SoC, but I'll be surprised if Medfield accomplishes this. Reply

    After looking at honeycomb, i can say that tablets are maturing .... but still long way to go for it to become a common mans everyday computing device. Following are things i think future tablets will have

    1) keyboard dock integration in the OS - rather than 3rd party integration like asus eee pad transformer

    2) integration of chrome like web browser - chrome os integration with honeycomb is a possibility

    3) better processing power - may be next-gen processors sill have it

    4) Full MS or an alternative Word, excel and presentation softwares

    5) all the features curently we get with honeycomb

    6) Price at around $300 - $500 range

    Following can be excluded or given as optional:

    1) back side camera (the main camera) .. i dont thinl many people need a camera for a tablet

    2) GPS can be given as optional choice

    put most battery in the handle, detachable too so that we can

    buy new handle when batteries die

    use amoled screen to reduce weight density at the edges

    use rigid foam materials that can absorb shock energy and reduce density significantly

    Without improving HOW people can input data a tablet will never really hold up. The tablet manufacturers MUST figure out a way to either let me type fullspeed onto the screen or incorporate one of those illuminated/projected keyboards.

    I would like to see more tablets like the Asus eee pad transformer. The biggest drawback for a tablet for me is the lack of a keyboard option. It would have to be able to be used like a netbook and a laptop.

    Windows isn't designed with a touch interface in mind so I don't want to see that on tablets. Heck, its not suited for netbooks due to its actual requirements. 2GB of ram isn't enough for windows 7 to be productive and the atom processor is a joke.

    Something running google android or chrome would be a nice change of pace.

    I'd like to see a clearly defined set of specs for Android tablets. A standard, one that Google won't release Honeycomb unless it meets certain parameters. This way, I think it would be much easier to develop for if developers had a unified set of goals. That's why I think many developers have chosen the Ipad, because they know how their programs will run every single time and that's good for developers, customers, and investors. Reply

    The path of tablet success is three pronged Status-Visual Performance-innocuous in everyday life. For me status always follows from the other two, but just add an “i-“ in front of to insure you get laid that OK.

    No one going to do computational fluid dynamics on one of these thing at least till 2020. So it really comes down to graphics performance. How pretty the picture of sally’s cat looks on your large high resolution pad or how well that accelerometer driven driving game/fighting plays.

    innocuous in everyday life in many ways. The most annoying thing about any portable device is the charging methodology. Really needs to be a flat flexible contact mat. Input in a portable device is still the short suit on any portable device. Swiping or thumb typing and voice recognition are really al so lame in their current state. I could be wrong but something else has to come along.

    Something like optical hand recognition has to come along. A cross pollination between Lenovo’s eye recognition and the optical technology of kinects and the PS 3 version.

    Software A more integrated version of Google’s Chrome browser. Better version of Google docs that are not loaded to the hilt with useless bloat functions like Office 2009 has.

    -A kickstand? (Something Similar to the Evo)

    -a laptop dock similar to the Atrix's (great idea for a 10" screen)

    -NFC (Near-Field Communication, see Nexus S)

    -USB 3.0 (better for charging as well, might be easier to ditch the current power setup on the Xoom; Could also lead to selling more Xoom travel chargers, since most people aren't heavily invested in USB 3.0, specifically with cables)

    -Micro SDXC support (for SD cards >32GB)

    -A fingerprint reader?

    -Audio with Beats by Dre, Bose, or some other high end audio company. Also, a subwoofer would make it sound much better, but making room for it could prove to be difficult

    -HD and FM radio support; This would cost a little bit more for cost, but C'mon Motorola, you threw a Barometer in there for funzies, you should throw something people will use as well

    -3D cameras, screen, and for something innovating, front facing 3d cameras!

    -MHL port for HDMI and power in one convenient port, with 3D 1080p out

    -a Remote control app from Motorola specifically, compatible with all Android 2.2 phones (or lower if possible) that allows you to manage media, volume and other aspects of the tablet from afar. Good for movies/music

    -Carbon Fiber back material (I know I'm dreaming now)

    -A backup dock. If you have data like photos and video, and you want to dump them while on the go, you could dock the Xoom into it and it automatically starts copying your media to an internal hard drive (western digital please) and then deletes it when the transfer it complete. This way if it gets unplugged during transfer, you don't lose the data. Although MicroSDXC would make this purely a convenience factor, it could still sell because it would be a separate thing from the Xoom, so even if the Xoom becomes lost or stolen, you have your data

    I held off on the Xoom because I'm a broke college kid

    I really thought google's chrome OS was a glimpse of the future. being able to access your cloud computer anywhere by a simple login just makes logical sense to me.

    Tablets are so small and light, it makes them very conveinent to use. I expect down the road when they become cheaper, a tablet might have the feeling of being disposable. And when I say disposable, I mean if one were to become misplaced or broken it wouldn't be as devastating as loosing your laptop. Because all you would have to do is just buy another, login and you're back to where you were. Tablets will drop in price and when they do, this is when I picture my vision being plausible.

    I'm typing this comment on my iPad 2. I love the idea of tablets and the practicality of them. I can't wait to see what the market will be like in the coming years.

    In all honesty, I'd like to see small devices appear with standard use of a strong IR transmitter. Many devices these days have apps to control tv's and other devices remotely, but you essentially need to buy a 3rd party device to use these functions. They are cheap, small and easy to add in in most cases.

    On the software front, I'd like to see devices that are tied to an e-mail address (which most are already) so that you could send an e-mail to the device from the specified address and receive back a list of options and information such as battery life remaining, Trigger alarm tone (to find if lost), activate flash led (to aid in locating) etc.

    The way most people find a lost phone is to call the device and run around looking for it. Being able to trigger a long, loud, lasting tone via e-mail, regardless of the phone's current volume settings will greatly assist those of us without a land-line.

    If you look at the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer, with its keyboard/touchpad doc, you can finally get work done on a Tablet, but the resolution (even at 10.1 inches) is still too low to effectively have enough info on the screen to do more serious work.

    Honestly, I know it's kind of a pipe dream, but I remember reading a while back about some prototypes of circuitry that harnessed the power in ambient RF signals to generate electricity. The idea was that it could be used to trickle-charge a device without ever having to connect it to "the grid."

    I'd love to see that implemented in a tablet style of device, as it would, at that point, be the kind of thing you could literally leave lying around the house anywhere. Think of all that time the device would be sitting in standby - you could potentially never have to plug it in.

    I think that speech recognition should be implemented, but not with a standard microphone on the tablet, as you would pick up a lot of background noise, and would not work well in noisy environments. I think that a bluetooth headset, like what is used for a cell phone, could be implemented much easier, as they do a good job in allowing people to talk on the phone without picking up a bunch of background noise. This seems like a simple solution utilizing existing technologies. Reply

  • Arsynic - Friday, April 22, 2011 - link

    The Atrix and the Asus EEE Pad are the most important devices out there. Why? They are ushering in Context Computing.

    Context Computing devices will change the user experience based on context. For example in the phone context, you will have limited features based on that form factor. When you dock that phone to a tablet screen, the OS/UI gives you more options based on the form factor. When you dock that tablet to a keyboard base, it becomes a fully functioning netbook.

    This is what I want to see and this is what I believe we'll see in the near future.

    It would be great if Motorola came up with some kind of keyboard dock solution similar to the Asus Transformer. And included the Transformers USB host support, further blurring the line between tablet and netbook.

    16-32GB isn't always enough. When/if the SD card starts working you could max at what? 64GB total?

    Maybe an option for mSATA? (not at the expense of SD card though) And make it user upgradeable. That way there wouldn't be a need to get it initially and blow the budget. Or when storage options jump in size you're not left out. Make it accessible to ext3/4 under Android (or NTFS if it's a windows pad) so it's easy to recover data in the event of a damaged pad.

    In the next-gen SoC/tablets, I'd love to see the ability--at the hardware level--to network different devices seamlessly together. If I have a smartphone and tablet running the same SoC, they should be able to "speak" to one another: think WebOS 3.0's touch-and-go capability on a wireless, more powerful, much more fully integrated scale.

    Not only should they be able to synchronize data--and transfer the current, active state of the device from one to the other on-the-fly (in other words, if you're working on a project on one, you should be able to transfer the work state instantly to the secondary device with the tap of a button)--but they should also be able to network their processing power when they're near one another. Think Folding@Home for Playstation 3, but on a smaller, LAN scale. With this combined processing power, imagine the possibilities.
