I'm kinda puzzled by some of your complaints,but I see later in the thread you are unaware of some of iOS 5's functionality. Even then there are things each and everyone of us would like to see in an iPad. Even then iPad really doesn't have any competition so it isn't likely to change anytime soon.

Well yeah everybody had their own expectations as rumors and news built up around iPad. The thing is you can't expect any thing developed by a third party to fit your needs perfectly. Further ones imagination allows for unlimited functionality where as real products have constraints.
there's no actual workspace or true multitask.
IOS has multitasked since day one. It runs the same UNIX lke kernel that is at the center of Mac OS. It doesn't allow multiple user apps running at the same time simply to save on battery and RAM.
people might like what the ipad has now, but i really think apple could've done something better...
Apple is doing better. Everytime a major iOS update comes out it is improved both internally and externally.
it's really all personal preference. the ios really seems more like a mobile phone OS, not a tablet os. tbh, i'd prefer it be more like osx, but again thats personal opinion. seems like i'm the only one though...
I'm not sure if you are trolling or just suffering from personal ignorance. IOS basically puts the meat of UNIX in a handheld device. Sure the UI is different but that is the whole point of iOS, that is to provide a touch interface for small tablets.
other than the os, anything else? I'd really prefer the speaker design to be changed. its damn ugly with the curved edge
Being old with sub optimal hearing I'd like to see significant effort put into iPads speakers, so in this regard we are on the same page.
In any event I'm not sure what you are wishing for in the next iPad, most of what you posted are operating system related issues. IPad 3 is a hardware release. Me I'm hoping for an SD slot and a USB port. We aren't likely to get those though. On the other hand I could see Apple adding a Thunderbolt port. Beyond those I don't see major external changes, instead we will likely get a major internal overhaul.
