Problems being reported with Apple's new iPad

Apple's new iPad has been on store shelves for less than a week, but consumers are already voicing complaints about the device.

The biggest issue seems to be how hot the new tablet gets, especially when it's processor is working hard to pump out high definition graphics.

In fact, after launching games on both devices, consumer reports found the new iPad ran 13 degrees hotter than the less powerful iPad Two.

But the testers say it was not uncomfortably hot in their hands, just warm to the touch.

Still, an Apple spokeswoman says the new iPad operates well within the company's thermal specifications, and if customers have any concerns they should contact AppleCare.

Another issue being reported concerns the tablet's 4G connectivity. The Wall Street Journal says, while it's fast, it also drains data plans, sometimes in just a few hours.
