Blackberry Playbook Heating Up?

Hello, I recently purchased a BB Playbook from Best Buy. Since the purchase, I noticed that the back side of the Playbook begins to heat up. Is this normal? It usually heats up near the bottom back in the horizontal position of the Playbook. I still have time to exchange this product (if needed).
