Australian competition watchdog to take Apple to court for New iPad misleading promotion

Emails for Small Business with Constant Contact
This time it’s not Samsung, but Apple to fall in problem in Australia. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) says Apple is misleading claims over the just launched New iPad tablet PC.

ACCC said it would be taking the iDevice giant to Federal Court for misleading claims of the tablet’s ability of connecting to 4G mobile network.

The competition watchdog alleges the promotion ‘iPad with WiFi +4G’ is misleading as in Australia it mean a consumer can get it connected to the 4G mobile data network via a SIM card, but this is not the case actually.

Apple’s New iPad is not capable of connecting 4G broadband speeds in the country as the spectrum frequency is not available for delivering high-speed Internet.

The New iPad was unveiled by Apple CEO Tim Cook on March 7 in San Francisco and was made available in selected countries on March 16.
