    Haven't tried facetime yet, but I did notice it gets hot when syncing.

    This is what I noticed

    Here's what happened. I started the convo, placed it on my ipod stand so my hand didn't get tired. Picked it up and ended the convo and noticed how warm the ipod got from the convo. It wasn't like burning hot but it was significantly warm. I thought that was rather unusual.

    It isn't just facetime it gets hot when you use it for a while on an app or pretty much anything that involves keeping it on and working. It just wat iPod touchs do. I used mine a lot the past 2 days and it can get hot but it just working hard.

    No joke, it gets significantly warm. But again, I may have gotten too used to the iPad, which never gets close to skin temperature.

    Graphics intensive apps will do that. The back of the touch is a nice heatsink. :cool:

    It's normal. My touch does this. My iPhone 4 also got pretty warm/hot while FaceTiming. Don't worry about it.
