Well, since you know I'm actively working on the successor yet, I think I can share some of my ideas. Basically, it's to keep what's good and fix what can be fixed What's good: Size: Similar. If we have to increase it, it will not be much (maybe 1 - 2 mm to one side) Clamshell design: Of course! Full sized SD Card slots: I would like to keep these as well. USB Ports: Sure thing! Gaming Controls: Ummm... Replaceable battery: Yep. I want to keep the exact same battery for various reasons.: It will ensure that batteries for the Pandora will be available for a longer period of time. We know it works properly (less risk) Whoever owns the successor AND the Pandora can the batteries for both devices. The battery compartment will be changed though, so that the battery will fit much better What needs to be fixed: Nubs: Completely new ones. We already have some samples that are working so much better (best nubs I've ever seen). LCD-Cable: While the current ones are good, they still fail too often in my opinion. With MIPI displays, we don't need LCD Cables anymore. Case: The case will be completely designed and produced by one company in Europe. This will ensure a higher quality. What could be improved: LCD: Better refresh rate, higher resolution (ideally 720p, but that's hard to get), size increased to 5" Keyboard: Slightly improved layout, better feel, probably backlight Wireless: Improved Wifi, but maybe also optional 3G/4G would be neat. Speakers: We already have samples of much better speakers. SoC: A more recent one, of course. And yes... we have the confirmation for one now, but I won't tell you So, that's my basic idea - what do you think about that?
