Will there ever be a hardware update?

I just bought the 32GB memory size from my local Best Buy and I really like the device but it definitely could be improved.

 

1. USB 3.0. I cannot emphasize this enough. 2.0 is just too slow. especially in a world filled with instant gratification.

2. possibly add AC capabilities as N is dead. This would allow for faster connection, especially since most new devices have AC antennae built in.

 

Does anybody know if they will release anything new or should I just spend the money on the larger size now?

I have not seen any news about an upgraded version coming out. Do you use it with iOS devices? If so they released a new iXpand. It is USB 3.0. See below.
