One of the most interesting speculations that we’d hope to be true is the presence of an app store. This app store, as speculations suggest that unlike the previous version where users would have to re-download the app to enjoy its full version benefits, provisions for a one-time download (a trial version), and unlock the same to enjoy the benefits of a full version.

Another speculation trickling in is the availability of a cloud based service. With the help of this service, users will be able to pick personalizations from one computer to the other with much ease. Using the cloud based settings and the app store the users can potentially sync the apps from the app store to the Windows PC. Grapevine also mentions the inclusion of Wi-Fi direct and 3D displays.
