Apple iPad 4G stubbornness blamed for Australian legal woes

Apple iPad 4G stubbornness blamed for Australian legal woes

Australia's consumer rights watchdog has detailed exactly what it expects of Apple to temporarily rectify the 4G confusion, though reports suggest the new iPad maker could have escaped legal intervention completely had it not argued over the exact wording of the LTE clarification. The Cupertino company faces the possibility of one or more penalty charges of up to $1.15m apiece; however, it's suggested that Apple might have bypassed a hearing on liability in which it may be charged with breaking Australian law, had it heeded warnings from the ACCC prior to the new iPad hitting stores.

iPad 4G under fire for misleading on Australian LTE

Apple's LTE woes with the new iPad 4G look set to get even more serious, with the Australian consumer rights commission accusing the company of misleading buyers and arguing it should offer refunds. The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission argues Apple has misled with its "iPad WiFi + 4G" name "because it represents to Australian consumers that the product [can] connect to a 4G mobile data network in Australia, when this is not the case."

New iPad: The Skeptic’s Review

New iPad: The Skeptic’s Review

I sent back the iPad 2, but I'm keeping the new iPad. Two years ago I wrote my first iPad skeptic's review, a more oblique - and personal - opinion on Apple's tablet than the traditional SlashGear review. A year later I did the same for the iPad 2, finding it improved but, from a combination of hardware and software, not sufficient of an upgrade for my needs to justify keeping it. Now Apple is up to its third-generation tablet, criticized by some as another "minor" refresh but in fact a considerable step up in the overall user-experience.

A sell-out iPad would’ve been an Apple failure

A sell-out iPad would’ve been an Apple failure

Apple's three million new iPad sales in the opening weekend are impressive but not particularly surprising; what the company has really demonstrated with the third-generation tablet isn't that it can create a coveted product, but that it can now deliver in bulk. Stock shortages have plagued Apple launches since the original iPhone, the company seemingly unable to meet demand for its high-profile phones and tablets. In fact, it's become a measure of success for stores to sell out and lines to snake outside for days and weeks as would-be owners queue desperately for the rationed hardware. Still, while "sell-out success" makes for good press hyperbole, turning customers away empty-handed isn't best for business. With the new iPad, though, Apple showed that the supply chain just got serious.

The new iPad may only have gone on sale hours ago, but already iOS hacking minds have turned to jailbreaking the third-generation slate, with several routes apparently showing promise. Apple's new tablet is, running iOS 5.1, likely to be susceptible to the same early hacks as identified four months ago, according to the iPhone Dev Team, though there are other methods already in the wild.

New iPad Review (3rd Gen)

New iPad Review (3rd Gen)

Apple's new iPad arrives to more than its fair share of expectations. The third generation tablet follows models that first created and then accelerated the consumer slate experience, and all eyes are on the new iPad to see whether it can keep up the momentum. Those eyes will have plenty to reward them, too: the biggest change to the new iPad is its incredibly detailed Retina Display. Pre-orders are through the roof, and queues outside Apple Stores began a week ahead of sales starting: there's no doubting interest is high, but does the new iPad live up to expectations? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
