Apple Australia offers iPad refunds

The ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation for those outside of Australia), reporting on Apple's response to claims of misleading statements over the new iPad:

Computer giant Apple has offered to refund people who bought its new iPad, which it admits is not compatible with Telstra's 4G network.

It does suck that the new iPad doesn't work with Australian 4G networks and probably a good reason to purchase the Wi-Fi version. I just tether my iPhone when I'm away from Wi-Fi, which doesn't happen often enough to be annoying.

Apple's response is interesting. Ben Brooks view is spot on:

It’s almost like a dare from Apple right? Kinda like them saying: we know you want the iPad, you know you want the iPad, so we call your bluff.
