I just purchased the brand new nook HD+ after I came to know that new May 2013 update has provided access to google play. I really want to like this kewl right size full android tablet having amazing display
However only thing which is worrying me is the heat which I can feel near the speaker area. It is getting warm with little use only ( browsing, mail checking etc). It gets really hot if I watch video or play any light game.
I also tried doing the hard reset as suggested here but in vain. Is it a well known issue or I got the bad piece ?

1) Exchange it.
2) That's where the processor is located. ARe you left handed? Usually left handed people notice this more.

I got my HD+ in May, and after about a week when I noticed it was getting very warm when I'd only used for about 15 minutes--just using internet,checking the bn shop. I checked out the blogs for this over heating.
Overheating is not good--Take it back for a replacement was the reccommendation. So I tok it back and exchanged it, the manager @BN was great, no questions--he did say that the overheating is not goood.
Well, a mknth later and I notice that my replacement is heating up too. Same activity by me--not using it for more than a half hour and its really warm. I am right handed, but I turn the nook hd+ around so who knows. I have gotten into the habit of turning off the wi-fi to let the Internet "cool down" and completely power off for a coupld of hours or over night.
I think I will exchange hd+ #2 and hope for the best. BUt realistkcally ,how many times should I expect to exchange this device due to the overheating?Thank goodness I have my nook Tablet--but that little gadget gadget has its own issues too!
Would appreciate any feedback abt overheating. Thx!

What amount of "warmth" would be normal? I just got mine last week. I do notice that it gets a little warm, but that's usually when I'm charging it. (It is the area around the charging hook-up), and I don't think it has gotten hot, just warm.

Mine did the same thing. Original got hot then I replaced it. Now the replacement gets hot on the left side. I am wondering if it isn't the heavy cover that doesn't let the heat get out. I have to put it on ice to cool it down sometimes. That ain't right. I wonder if there isn't some way to tell how much memory these apps use up. I wonder if overtaxing the CPU isn't an issue. I have a HD+ 32 gig with an 8 gig SD card. Video watching really starts it to heating up.
