Article does not have much to say, but to be honest there is little apparent game changer design advances about.
Stereo speaker like the Mini would be nice. Huge improvements in battery life so you a full 24 hours banging the crap out of it with video, wifi, 3/4G etc. Most of the other core stuff is fine as is. A 128Gb iPad 5 would be nice, as more apps are allowing downloads to device to carry movies etc... The Apps that accompany with my Synology DS413j Diskstation are a good example.
Advances in the ecosystem so it's less frustrating would be welcome - you buy an Apple device, it has 32Gb, you get free lifetime 32Gb of iCloud. If you have 2 devices, it is a multiplier 32Gb+32Gb==> 64Gb, and using it from a PC/Mac/Internet is easier like Dropbox.
