    Hi all ......... since I just bought an iPAD 2 and most of the time, my kid is playing with it. Just wondering whether is it safe to let the kid to play in long hours in front of ipad? What about the radiation level? Safe for long hrs ?

    The iPad does not have an 'old fashioned' cathode ray tube, when there was some concern about potential X-radiation from the electrons in the tube hitting the screen. The iPad has an LCD-type screen that emits no perceptible radiation. In addition, like all modern electronic equipment, it has passed all the necessary international standards for electromagnetic emissions. As far as can be ascertained, there is no danger from extended use of the iPad.

    Depends on when Apple received the parts in yours from Japan. As sneaky as Japan it wouldn't surprise me if they try and slip some high radiation parts into shipments sent out of the country.

    I suppose all the recently shipped Japanese cars, cameras, lenses, copiers, flash memory, etc. are actually sneaky nuclear weapons ready to blow at any time.

    Just stock up on some foil to make a nice hat. It'll be fine.
    Yes I wouldn't put it past Japan to still ship parts that were exposed to the radiation, though I don't think many of the factories surrounding the nuclear plants survived the ocean wave that caused the radiation leaks.
    If it were China I would expect the underhanded tactics plus put some lead paint on top to shield the radiation meters in the shipping ports :D
    Tim, once again , thank you for the information. Aspasia, thank you also.

    I guess I'm not the only one who don't trust them sense uncle Sam has stationed agents at all the major ports checking for just this.
    Besides look at all the sneaky stuff Toyota has pulled on their customers, or Mitsubishi who sent a bunch of their executives to jail for warranty issues.

    Why wouldn't he be? Every electronic device emits some level of radiation even when it's off.

    surely, it's not even an issue worth addressing in concern to the iPad...

    Don't worry about radiation, it's negligible. Though continuous use of a fixed screen device is known to reduce the frequency of blinking, the natural mechanism which maintains healthy eyes and eye function. I would say an hour is long enough for a single session.

    What people don't understand is that every object in the universe emits radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum. When an electronic communication device (cell phone, iPad, etc) is transmitting/receiving it emits radio wave radiation (microwave) but humans get more walking around outside than they ever will from say their iPad..lol People need to be informed but not overreact.

    The wood inside your house releases more radiation than most folks realize. The newer the home the more it releases.

    If you dont know about proximity sensors in Ipads then you need to learn more abt it

    I think this issue is not as clear cut as some people are making it. If yo dont know about proximity sensors in the Ipad then you need to learn more.
