Does your new iPad get warm?

Just wondered if anyone's new iPad has been getting warm? I've noticed a couple of times while gaming, but nothing major, just slight heat.

Yes, what you describe seems to be the "norm" ... they put a much more powerful battery and gpu into, essentially, the same housing - surprise, it gets a bit warmer.

Yeah, they get slightly warmer than the iPad 2, nothing to worry about though :).

Unless your hands go red or feel like its burning then report it to apple.

No kidding: My better half gets blisters on her hands from iPad/iPod's oleophobic screencover :O

I think you've mentioned that before. I guess she's allergic to whatever they use as an oleophobic coating. Have you ever found a way to remove the oleophobic-ness?

No, we actually looked into it...
she put on screen protectors...helps, but doesn't look and feel 'right', of course.

does she still get a reaction? if so shes better off not using it at all. the only other method would be aversion therapy but its expensive to do.

The iPhone 4S user guide apparently says don't use pure alcohol to clean the screen with as it'll ruin the oleophobic coating, maybe you could use this to your advantage and deliberately remove the coating using 100% ethanol.

I told her as much, but she looked right through my plan to take over her iPad 2 :p :(
She's okay with the screen protectors.
And matty, yeah, she tried the alcohol rub on an iPod touch... it looks really rubbish now hahaha without a sandblaster the stuff's not coming off completely.

Yeah just buy a case and get a stylus ;) then get her trying an android phone and see if its the way apple makes this stuff?
