Is the heat and issue? I have a 4G - wifi iPad and during angry birds and using safari it gets noticeably warm. I don't care what my local news says, but from the tech community is this an issue? Can the heat damage my iPad?

Just some note

I am mostly on wifi
My brightness is always 100% ( don't know why I just like it bright!)
Only use smart cover


Also I'm thinking about getting a speck or belkin snap case, will this cause it to stay warm or heat up faster?

It gets like 10 degrees fahrenheit warmer than the iPad 2, that's 5 celsius.

No the increased heat is not an issue.

It's not an issue as long as it doesn't get really hot. If it does you have a defective device. You should be able to comfortably hold it. Mine feels a bit warm when charging or doing anything really intensive. Yes, it's warmer than my iPad 2 (which always stayed cool) but it's not a real problem.
