2x the space, more battery life, HD resolution display of the same size (apps will be upscaled), HD camera.
I hope they unlock the FM tansmitter which is build into even the 3G.
Naturally, it will be better at all of the above. By better, though, I hope 'better' is nicely defined. I for one don't want a 5mp camera in a phone - the quality and noise levels are attrocious.
If the iPhone gets any bigger, it will be unwieldy so I hope that isn't the case. But, Apple are competing with numbers. Some competitors offer bigger, higher res displays which is a big boon for casual users. Numbers sell and Apple, a company which usually hide tech numbers may have to follow a different path.
But, I hope that the iPhone 4G gets:
-Better sound (if possible)
-IPS screen (am I dreaming?)
-Apple A4 processor
-A fully stable OS with better file structure support so that work truly can go on the road!
I would say a definite no on the bigger screen.
The camera is a no-brainer. I will probably also be based on the Apple A4 processor. The most interesting stuff will probably in the OS 4.0

@Swords - I don't think we will see High Def screen - that is impossible in the form factor and/or too expensive. The iPhone 3GS can already playback hi-def content, but I have not seen if it can spit that content to a TV. It does at least internally playback 1080 and 720p.
Hi-Def video playback on the iPhone 3GS is real
iPhone HD – more hi-res evidence emerges
There are some rumors regarding multitasking, but I onlybelieve it once I see it on my iPhone.

I think there is a high chance the screen will be upgraded. Most newer phones have almost HD resolutions, see HTC HD2 for example.
But the main problem will be implementation, since the bulk of their apps now is based on the original resolution.
If it could hit iPad's resolution then it will be great so devs only need to submit 2 versions of their apps
Well, with the iPad's release, the apps. will eventually be "upgraded" to higher res. so I wouldn't rule that possibility out. It all depends on how the 4.0 OS will handle all this I guess. I'm hoping they double the ram, upgrade the processor (although i'm not too sure if it will be the new A4) and improve the cam a little bit. But the main stuff will come with the 4.0 OS upgrade. It most likely will have some of the new stuff that the iPad has, plus some limited form of multitasking.
