Just received my new ipad (32G wifi, black).   After turning it on for the first time I noticed a visible light leakage at the top edge of the screen, it is at least one inch long and very annoying indeed!  I've googled this issue and found that there are some others complaining about the same thing, while one guy mentioned that, for his device 'the leakage disappeared after 2 hours of use'.   well, I've been using it for at least 3 hours and it doesn't seem to get even a little bit better.  I'm quite disappointed as my ipad 2 has no such issue at all, not to mention that the new ipad seems to generate more heat, makes it uncomfortable to hold it like a book.  I'm bringing it to my local store tmr, hopefully they can do sth about it.
