Perfection is demanded of the New iPad

Too hot, too fast, or just too much attention? In the short time since its inception, the new iPad has been the subject of two separate, high-profile controversies questioning Apple's hardware decisions.

Several early-adopters have taken to Apple's support communities to voice concerns about the range of the tablet's WiFi, suggesting that it is underwhelming in comparison to where the first- and second-gen iPads could receive a signal. Meanwhile, others are discovering that an HD-capable display and fast throughput of LTE means a couple of gigabytes of 4G data allowance is easily consumed.

Apple could buy its way out of Chinese iPad ban hints Proview chairman

Enacting a full import ban on the iPad 2 in China is likely too difficult to achieve, litigious trademark holder Proview says it has been warned by customs, leaving the company hinting it would accept a payoff from Apple. Having won its legal challenge against Apple in China last year, convincing courts that it, not the American company, holds the iPad trademark, Proview has now discovered that implementing a sales ban against the coveted tablet may be even more troublesome than the Cupertino legal team.
