    Where humans are concerned you are never the only one. So I guess you have several friends/relatives to see the blue hue as well, right?

    Let's play nicely. It's so much more fun that way :)

    Guys i visited the apple store and i compared my ipad with the ones there. Half of them had similar blue hues and others did not!! Comparing the maximum brightness levels between the two you could obviously see a difference between them which shows that there are at least two kinds of screens used in the new ipads!! I swapped mine hoping to get the other screen type and eventually i did! I dont know if that batch is only in the UK but it does exist and it does have a slight blue hue around the edges!!!

    Turn of the lights and put a completely white image at full screen. Then hold the ipad in landscape mode and look a the left and right edges there should be around 2mm of slight blue hue.

    Where in the world are you? I have read that LG is making ipad screen now, and maybe even one other company.

    Sorry you are having this issue. Are you able to exchange it for a replacement?
