A teleportation device doesn't seem too likely - balance effects would be immense, and it would give Protoss and ungodly amount of map presence. With these and Warp Prisms you could basically just win since you could move any army anywhere and immediately reinforce it. And then move it right back to defend a drop. And then hit an expansion. And then the main.

I like this idea. Be cool to see some sort of heavy-hitter (think bombers vs. fighters in Sins of a Solar Empire) that fires slower but does more damage, maybe with a bonus vs. armored and/or structures. I doubt that's it though.
The Phoenix/Corsair ideas are probably off too. I don't think we'll have two different air-only flyers for one race, it's too redundant.
My guess here would be a relatively inexpensive air-to-ground unit. Possibly siege range, although it looks rather small for that.
