    hey guys, i got a ipod touch 3g few days back....and i noticed that it gets heated up near the port at the bottom after 10-15 minutes of video or audio playback... and gets heated up a lot faster while playing games like tap tap revenge, bowling or any of the racing games......is this normal?.....or is there something wrong with my device?

    It's not normal for it to get even slightly heated during audio playback. It's normal for while playing games though

    My 3G gets a bit warm while playing videos, and somewhat hot (nothing to make your hand feel uncomfortable) while playing 3D games.

    I've only seen my touch heating up when charging in my car or when playing graphic intensive games such as real racing, top gun, f.a.s.t, or cod zombies.
    Other than that no.

    My ipod touch 4g heats up on standby! I think this is very bad! Its the top part of the ipod that heats up. The battery life doesn't seem too bad, though.

    My ipod touch 4g even heats up slightly when browsing the web and up to 40 C + when I play espagula II. I think it is normal.
