Even if New iPad Is Hot, Consumer Reports Decides It’s Not Bothered

After earlier getting worked up about whether the iPad might heat up too much, Consumer Reports says further testing shows the issue isn’t that big a deal, after all.

“Responding to consumer comments on the new device, and to coverage from other reviewers, we also carried out further tests that confirmed the new iPad is warmer in its hottest spots than the iPad 2,” the magazine said on Monday. “But we didn’t find those temperatures to be cause for concern.”

Indeed, the magazine has done something of a 180, and now says the new iPad is tops among tablets.

Also recommended by the magazine were Sony’s Tablet P and Pantech’s water-resistant Element.
