Apple Rebrands "iPad 4G" as "iPad With Fast Mobile Data Networks"

By Gary Cutlack on at

Apple has once again tweaked the text that accompanies its New iPad sales listing in the UK, removing all trace of the difficult "4G" term and replacing it with more vague wording when it comes to data connectivity abilities.

The controversial 4G boast has been removed from the front page of Apple's iPad store and from the tech spec pages buyers see when selecting a model, with Apple now claiming the UK model of the latest iPad connects to "fast mobile data networks" with the small print only mentioning the our existing HSPA, HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA data options.

The Australian listing which caused trouble down there has also been edited, with Apple now claiming the Aussie machine connects to "very fast cellular networks" when one's available. That'll keep the various regulators happy. [The Register]
