Occasional screen flicker - is that normal?

    Once every week or so I notice that the iPad's screen starts flickering a bit. The effect usually disappears after a few minutes. It doesn't seem to be related to a particular app or way of using the machine.

    Is this behavior normal or have others noticed it as well? Any explanation on why this happens?

    Happened with me as well, I think around 90% battery charge level. My screen brightness is always minimal. I don't have any explanation for this.

    I never associated the flickering with battery level - but rather with wifi activity. Will check now if it only happens with a nearly fully charged battery.

    I have noticed that with both wifi and 3G usage. Only with safari and mail apps.
