New iPad too hot to handle when running video games?

U.S. nonprofit product testing group Consumer Reports reported that the new-generation iPad with its more powerful processor hit temperatures as high as 116 degrees Fahrenheit, particularly when running video games. Consumer reports said the new iPad got about 12 degrees warmer than the iPad 2 tablet while performing the same intensive tasks, such as video games or downloading large files. One rear corner of the new iPad appeared to be a hot spot. Consumer Reports spokesman James McQueen said that people need to exercise caution as 116 degrees can be a little uncomfortable.

Operating temperatures of the latest iPads were hot topics among Apple gadget owners at online forums. Apple has sold three million of its new iPad tablet computers over the course of its first weekend on the market.
