    Hi, i just purchased a 32gb 2g Ipod touch, Im loving it, but when I use safari (or wifi intensive apps) or play games (like spore) the lower left corner (when held vertically) seems to heat up, not too hot, but substantially warm, it also happens when i charge the battery. Most of the Ipod keeps cool, only that one focal point in the lower left corner is what heats up. Movies and music don't cause this though.
    Is this normal?

    Thanks in advance

    Mine does not really heat up at all. I suggest get it replace while you can unless it doesn't really bother you that much.

    My 1G iPod heats up about 1cm from the bottom whenever I play games, use wifi heaps, etc.

    I don't see it as a problem.

    I'm sure there is enough proof that the second gen ipod touch heats up while chargeing, but the different types of chagers could play a part of the temp. of the ipod during charge. Such as wall chargers which charge at 1000mA, Firewire 750mA and 2.0 USB 500mA. The higher the amperage the hotter the ipod.
