It's still 2012 and the 'new iPad' is yet to arrive at retail, but that doesn't stop us from issuing a list of Top 10 feature demands for the next 'new iPad', due to arrive in around twelve months from right about now.

Ok, so I haven't yet put my hands onto the 'new iPad', but I've certainly read a heck of a lot about it, and am definitely looking forward to not only playing with one, but buying one at some stage relatively soon.

Now that all the rumour-mongering and speculation over the 'new iPad' is over, because Apple has finally announced what's in it, let alone what its surprising 'new name' ended up being, it's time to look to the future, to the next iPad, the new new iPad we expect to arrive in 2013.

These top 10 feature demands aren't in any particular order, they're just as I have thought of them, and if you have some 'feature demands' you'd like to share in the comments section, you're most welcome to do so.

Number 1 on the list is a 128 GB capacity choice, doubling the current 64 GB maximum.

Number 2 on the list is a 4G chip that's also compatible with the 1800MHz 4G used in Australia and European countries using the same 4G standard.

Number 3 is an improved front facing camera of at least 2 megapixels, if not more, for sharper Facetime, Skype and other video conferencing (or front facing photography).  

Number 4 is an improved rear camera, one that's 8 megapixels or even one that does what Nokia's Pureview 808 41 megapixel camera does - deliver incredibly zoomable photos and videos.

Number 5 is a rear camera flash. If Apple's giving the new iPad a proper camera, it can give the next iPad a flash too.

Number 6 is the ability to pair a mouse with the iPad for those wanting the additional fine control that a mouse enables for things such as selecting text in word processing documents, avoiding the need to 'reach' for the screen - especially if you're using an external Bluetooth keyboard.

Numbers 7 to 10 and more conclude on page two, please read on!
