Apple rebrands iPad 4G after LTE furore

Apple rebrands iPad 4G after LTE furore

Apple has quietly rebranded its new iPad WiFi + 4G in response to continued pressure from regulators concerned that buyers were being misled over the data speeds the third-gen tablet could achieve. The tablet, now know as the new iPad WiFi + Cellular, was capable of connecting to LTE networks from Verizon and AT&T in the US, but incompatible with 4G networks elsewhere in the world. Apple had faced increasing scrutiny in Australia, the UK and elsewhere over whether its branding was confusing and potentially misinforming would-be tableteers as to what their new gadget was capable of.

Proview demands $400m for Chinese iPad trademark

Will the Stylus Have the Last Laugh?

Will the Stylus Have the Last Laugh?

There are times, the SlashGear team reminds me, when I sound like a broken record; not least is when I'm bleating on about stylus input and what makes a "proper" tablet. Apple's iPad convinced the market that fingers were most functional, and the clunky digital pens of Windows 7 slates did little sway them otherwise.
