Apple offers Refund to Australian iPad 4G Customers

Australians who feel they got misled by Apple that the new iPad supports 4G LTE in Australia can get their money back according to The Guardian. The new iPad 4G is only supporting the North American LTE networks. Apple is though selling the new iPad with the 4G moniker also in Europe and the rest of the world. This is not really clean and rather confusing. The Australian consumer watch dog (ACCC) took action and is seeking orders against Apple in Australia.

Apple took some short cuts here because there is no single chip that supports all LTE frequencies. Apple should have made different 4G iPad hardware for each region, but they opted against that to save money, but losing in my mind quite a bit of superiority.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
