Hi Guys,

I have owned an iPad (first gen), iPad 2 Wi-Fi and last week upgraded to an iPad (third gen).

I have noticed the latest iPad becomes hot after 30 minutes of use. It's noticeably hotter than room temperature and I would guess the unit to be warmer than 40'C.

This occurs without the charger being used, with brightness on typical/medium settings.

Anyone else noticed this?

Yes, I bought the new iPad aswell. It does get hot at the back lower parts, I usually leave it down for a few minutes for it to cool down. But I suspect it may be the battery.

Could it be just the 4G model? Mine is staying quite cool so far. Here is hoping it stays that way.
