The new iPad is the hottest tablet in the world. Literally.
As MMi reported earlier Tuesday, a fleet of complaints and concerns have pelted Apple Support Discussion forums in recent days following initial claims that the third-generation iPad gets much, much hotter than the iPad 2.
According to several user tests and blogger experiments around the world, it was repeatedly shown that the new iPad does, indeed, run hotter than its predecessor. But it wasn't until Tuesday afternoon when Consumer Reports weighed in on the matter that the heat was really turned up on Apple's new tablet.
The new iPad can run significantly hotter than the earlier iPad 2 model when running an action game, Consumer Reports testers have found.
Although some are quick to assume that the new tablet may be plagued by overheating problems, there's no reason yet to think that the new iPad isn't adequately build to withstand the operating rigors some users are putting the device through as we speak.
Regardless, we will keep you posted on this developing concern as more news, insight, and information surfaces.
