Apple’s magical device suffering from old LCD technology issues.

Tags: ,

iPad 2′s magical properties isn’t stopping it from producing hardware faults, it seems. So far two issues have been reported. The first one is the pesky little yellow spots beneath the LCD glass, much similar to the ones face by users of the iPhone 4 when it launched. The spots are expected to evaporate after a while though, as the bonding agent used for the LCD glass takes a little while to disappear.

The second issue might be able to disappear on its own. I Am Phones has demonstrated, in the video below, LCD bleeding issues on the bottom of the iPad 2. The bleeding is usually noticeable when watching a dark screen (not when switched off) or using an app that uses a dark background. This is a very common LCD issue found in most HDTV screens, though improvements have made in that area.

If you have an iPad 2 already, does it bleed?
