    I've got both the 64 GB versions of the iPad 2 and 3. Both with the SIM cards. I cannot tell any difference in weight or operating temps.

    I think some people are too sensitive.

    I see all these people saying "oh, I have no heat problem on my new iPad", but seriously, I don't believe there are ANY people out there who don't have the lower left corner of the unit getting fairly warm if they run an intensive app like Infinity Blade II. So these people are either: (a) lying, or (b) have the unit in a case and never feel it.

    Because if there are people for whom the unit doesn't get warm, then basically every single person who has a unit that does should return theirs because it's definitely defective.

    I have an ipad 1 and an ipad 3

    As far as I can tell holding them in each hand they weigh the same, and the new one is not remotely hot either.

    In other words people are freaking out over nothing


    When my iPad 1 came out, 300 people reported that the wifi on it did not work. Funnily enough when people started buying the ipad no one found any problem with the wifi at all. What's the chance these 300 people worked for microsoft or android?

    I can feel my unit get warm. However, I don't see this as a problem.

    heat issues will only lead to the chipset burning up faster or having a shorter lifespan. Prolonged extreme heat will only hurt the device in the long run. then imagine the temps of ipads owned by people in the south were it gets scorching hot and humidity very high.

    Yes, with the amount of heat we are talking about it may cut the life of the chips from 11 years to only 10 years
    Obviously this is a huge issue to some people that have not thought about it.

    I have both, an iPad 2 and an iPad 3 and the weight difference is somewhat noticeable. It is no deal breaker for me though. The screen as well as other improvements make the iPad 3 a winner.

    Guys this should end the discussion regarding the new iPad ( generation3) over heating. Please read the article.

    New iPad Found to be Not so Hot After All Compared to Some Android Tablets

    Regard weight that also is a really not an issue. Based on the above update we see no further reason for keeping this thread open.

    Thank you for your input and I hope the OP can find a solution to his problem.
