    seeing as i dont have the touch yet i wouldnt know the normal operating temp. but if its like, alarmingly hot, there could be a problem, such as a loose connection, get it checked out at an apple store

    Yes, they do get a little warm....Of course that's to be expected.

    It is expected for it to gain some heat while charging. All batteries do this.

    Mine gets pretty warm while charging, especially when I am charging it and using it at the same time. This is expected, unless it is very warm or hot I wouldn't worry about it.

    it gets pretty warm, but not scolding hot or anything like that.

    Other than that the ipod touch seems to get rly warm when your using apps not optimized or ipod touch ie. 3rd party apps espcially CPU intensive apps like gpsphone.
    either that or my palms are wamring it up XD
