    Comparing my iPad2 to my calibrated desktop monitor, the iPad2 is very much on the cool side.

    It doesn't bother me at all because I don't use the iPad for color critical work. I think the cooler color on the iPad is actually very pleasant for reading and other tasks for which I use the iPad.

    My iPad 1 was warmer, iPad 2 is cooler. It doesn't really bother me either way, I only really notice it when I compare them side by side.

    I like the cooler look of the ipad2. It's more brilliant looking than my iPad 1.

    I was doing some mobile site testing at work yesterday side-by-side with an iPad and my iPad 2 - the iPad 2 is definitely cooler. Seems to make the screen look nicer for reading, as someone else mentioned.

    I'm not using my iPad for color-critical work anyway - that's what my MBP is for. :)

    My ipad is noticably cooler than my gf's 64GB version side by side, both bought in Paris same time.
