iPad 4G - North America Only

Apple agreed to pay a $2.2 million (U.S.) fine to the Australian government following a ruling from the Federal Court on Friday. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission group brought Apple to court after the company claimed its new iPad supported 4G networks when the device, in fact, did not support Australia’s 4G networks. Apple agreed in May to issue refunds to any unhappy customers in Australia who had purchased the iPad and tweaked its 4G claims in May to reflect that the new iPad doesn’t support Australia’s 4G networks. The settlement is reportedly still awaiting court approval, MobileBurn said.
