Mine heats up right under the BB logo on the back. Not a problem.
If you find it gets hot when carrying it about away from wifi, turn on Aircraft Mode or turn off wifi, as it may be hunting for a signal in vain.
Similarly using manual sync instead of Push for email (especially Gmail) will use battery and heat up the Playbook

Mostly I notice it's heating up under the BB logo while browsing the web. But, other than that it's all right.
I usually leave my WiFi on to recieve email notices.. A great feature in the Playbook that is quite handy. I don't have to use my laptop to check for mail. I notice that the battery gets used up more when turning on and off the airplane mode.
