Same problem here. Experiencing overheat problem from the first day of using. Hope Apple can find a solution for this problem. It just gets annoying while using for long time.

Same thing here. Got this, opened at 89% charge right out of the box. I charged it to 100%, and after limited use, probably less than 20 min ,battery dropped down to 94% and the left corner was too hot to hold. My hands continued to be noticeably warm and uncomfortable. Will have to return this if this is not fixed. You'd think people would have mentioned this in reviews or something before the release.

Same here, the lower left side gets realy hot that I can't hold it. The old ipad 2 NEVER did that, I also noticed that as it gets hot the games (if you're playing) gets choppy. But it also geets hot even if you are ust browig the web. Battery charge also drops like crazy.

I'm using a 64GB, WiFi only new iPad and it definely gets warmner than my iPad 2 did. It hasn't froze of needed to cool down, but gets very warm. Battery drains faster than iPad 2 as well, and takes sooooooooooooo much longer to fully charge.

The thing I hate about returning products, is they just exchange it with an used version. Last year my iPad 2 had a screen that was popping out, and they replaced it. I was putting my sim card in and there was one from AT&T card already in there, and I live in Canada. There was also a small scratch on the back, I called Apple and they said that's policy to exchange a defect with a repaired one.... I'd rather return then rebuy.

Check out theverge.com; they have a thread going and a number of people discussing this problem.
It's now made the news as the Huffington Post has picked it up:

A lot of users are also calibrating thier battery and the issue seems to be fixing itself. Let it drain all the way until it shuts itself off and then let it charge for 4-5 hours without using it (I know it's hard for some of us).

The battery life on mine improved a bit ofter I did a software update but still runs uncomfotably hot. Not at all like my iPad 2, which also seem to run longer on a charge. That and the screen with a strage tint along the edge, means it's going back. This is a replacement for the orignal. It's a pain becuase my nearest store is 40mi away. It think I am going to return it and wait a couple of weeks and see if everything goes back to normal, it seems like the first run have had a lot of trouble, otherwise, I may buy an ipad 2 (I can't believe I already sold mine) instead. The screen wasn't as shart but but the quality was superior.

To anyone still wondering, the issue seems to have made news.
And Apple has denied the problem.
Hopefully more cases will come out soon, to protect our precious hands

I'm posting as well. The new iPad is so hot to the touch that it's uncomfortable to hold. My battery runs down in a very short time. I did drain it and recharge, which took almost 8 hours! This is nuts to release this with all of these problems.
