Hopefully this hasn't already been posted, but reading through 15 pages of this thread is kind of a chore ...
1. In the place of the 'home' button on the TP face, a real navigation button, one that can be used to move the cursor up/down/left/right, or can be used to scroll without having to endlessly swipe on the screen, or can be held as a drag-lock when used with a gesture; the insanity of a completely-blank touchscreen has to stop - it's not the best ergonomic solution, or even a good one, but a form-over-function marketing device that nearly everyone has played follow-the-Apple with. If style is paramount, then embed these functions in a gesture area like the Pre, and light them when touched - little glowing arrows can be 'cool,' too .
2. Haptic feedback on the keyboard - the only feedback is sound, and when one is trying to be quiet, that's gone; since the TP clearly has a vibration system, use it with the keyboard as well.
3. USB host mode
4. Back-facing camera (actually, make it at a 45° angle to the device doesn't have to be held completely upright - this goes for phones, too! The vertical position is also a terrible ergonomic idea )
