With just a few weeks until Apple is expected to unveil the next version of its iPad tablet, V3 has drawn up a list of the some of the key features we would like to see brought to the device.
With Apple facing its first serious threat in the tablet market in the form of the Asus Transformer Prime, which recently trounced the iPad 2 in our head-to-head review, the firm no doubt has several tricks up its sleeve to wow the punters and reclaim its number one position.
What's more, when the device is unveiled, rumoured to be in early March, it will be interesting to see how the firm's development and design credentials have evolved since the death of Steve Jobs last October.
10. iOS 5.1 with Siri and Flash
Apple has a habit of launching devices with fresh software and it wouldn't be surprising to see iOS 5.1 debut on the iPad 3. We would hope to see this include Siri and support for Adobe Flash.
Siri is the personal voice activated assistant that was launched with the iPhone 4S and allows smartphone users to dictate emails and text messages as well as set appointments and reminders. The software is also able to answer questions by searching the internet, and provided us with much amusement with some of its comical answers too.
Additionally, although HTML5 is now accepted as the standard for web browsing, almost all websites have yet to make the transition and still use Adobe Flash to display video content.
Despite all the good points of the iPad, nothing is more frustrating than trying to view a video on a site only to be greeted with the "Please download Adobe Flash" message.
It looks like it is going to take a miracle for Flash to make it onto the iPad 3, especially as the software firm announced it would stop developing the plug-in for Android-based devices. However, we can but hope.
