Numerous reports of blacklight bleeding on the new Apple iPad 2 are surfacing online. Engadget and MacRumors forum users are posting images of their devices online and some have already returned the affected units to Apple.

Engadget notes that this is not to be confused with the yellow tint issue.

The second issue, which is being conflated with the first, is characterized by light bleeding through from the outer edges of the LCD panel.

Apple blocked it, not because the processor couldn't handle it, but because of the battery and because of the less difference with iPhone 4 I guess.
