Hey, everybody! The second generation of the Apple iPad came out and guess what!? It has problems….. Yes, that’s right, the newest toy from Steve Jobs and Apple has officially launched and reports are already streaming in about problems. One of the first reported problems has to do with the backlight supposedly “bleeding”. But that isn’t the only issue. Another issue being reported by users is yellow spots appearing beneath the LCD glass.
The yellow spots seem to be reminiscent of the same problems that plagued the fresh-from-the-factory iPhone 4 devices. However, that was easily resolved as soon as the bonding agent used to hold the LCD glass in place evaporated. But this article isn’t about spots, it’s about bleeding.
There appears to be some light bleeding through from the outer edges of the LCD panel on some iPad 2 devices. It is primarily noticeable when you are watching a dark scene in a movie or using an application with a black background.
There is, however, good news. This problem can easily be fixed by adjusting the brightness of your iPad 2. However, this could also make it worse depending on which way you adjust it. Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem to be so much of a major problem as it does an inconvenience or annoyance.
The iPad 2 is barely out of the womb, so to speak, and is already facing trouble. Hopefully trouble does not resume on the device considering the hype surrounding it and the intense desire by people to get their hands on one.
What do you think? Is the iPad 2 and all its glory worth the waiting in line and the price tag? Or, if you already have an iPad 2, are you experiencing any yellow spots or bleeding from the LCD glass? If so, let us know in the comments section below.
