    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.

    This other guy already created a thread in which he posted a link to another site that apparently "Confirmed" it to not be an issue, I don't know who those people are but if they say its confirmed (and this is the internet), so it must not be an issue.

    Confirmed: New iPad's heat a non-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.
