Why should people have to read fine print every time they buy a product. A feature like this should have a description in plain sight.
And if you click on that you get -
'Really really fast is your only option
The new iPad supports fast mobile networks the world over up to 4G LTE.2 So you can browse the web, stream content or download a film at incredibly fast speeds. It also works on GSM/UMTS worldwide network technologies, including HSPA, HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA the fastest 3G networks out there. Youll see downlink speeds up to 42 Mbps with DC-HSDPA and up to 21.1 Mbps with HSPA+.3'
It's hard to argue that this is not very
misleading. The fine print argument is rubbish, and everybody knows that.

But I have to admit it has crossed my mind. But really, I don't think so. All publicity arguably is good publicity but bad publicity is a real pain and reduces customers trust.
I really think this was known to Apple (they aren't technically lying) and was settled with a shrug. But its a sleaze ball kind of tactic and much as I love Apple they should be taken to task for it.
