    Seriously, my left hand starts to burn up a little bit.

    Mines in a case but I can clearly feel that it gets warmer than my iPad 2 did.

    The iPad is certainly no longer just a tablet or a mobile device. It's not effectively a laptop without a physical keyboard. The weight is more, heat is higher, screen awesome and battery size hefty.


    But the heat is a non-issue for me given that its in a case.

    Is it the LTE version doing this maybe?

    My wifi only didn't get hot even after testing a full 18 holes in Tiger 12

    I have a WiFi only version.

    Really, this is my only complaint at the moment.

    So far I've only felt it get hot once, while playing modern combat at the same time downloading various apps so i guess thats expected, but i guess I'm use to it from the iPhone.

    I have the Wi-Fi only version and after spending 45 minutes on a FaceTime call mine was noticeably hot even through the case. Doesn't bother me though. Situations like that should not happen often enough to make it a problem.

    :cool: The new iPad is a Microwave, and your hands are the meal! :eek: Remember this is the same company that put the antenna where you could touch it and interfere with the signal. I am sure customer safety is right up there with worker safety. :confused:

    My hands are really sore already... of course it could be the crutches I have been using all day and not the iPad. :rolleyes:
