“Maybe they should have called it the Kindle Fire?” Jason Gilbert wonders for The Huffington Post.
“According to early user reports, the new iPad may be prone to becoming physically warm during use, especially in the lower left-hand corner when holding the iPad upright in portrait mode,” Gilbert writes. “The question of whether the iPad has a temperature problem has been asked on both the Apple Discussion Boards and in the MacRumors forums, and articles on CNET, The Next Web and Gizmodo have all brought unwanted attention to the new iPad’s heat.”
Gilbert writes, “Apple did not immediately respond to request for comment. Until then, we will continue to monitor the iPad’s hotness, both in consumer demand and physical, perhaps discomforting, warmth.”
